British comedian Russell Brand, who hosted this year's MTV VMAs, is developing a remake of Arthur, the 1981 comedy that starred the late Dudley Moore as a rich, lovable lush in love with Liza Minnelli's financially-challenged character. Brand may star in the film, which he is developing for Warner Brothers.
The comedian is currently meeting with writers regarding the screenplay. Given the film's premise, about a playboy who stands to lose his sizable fortune when he falls in love with a working class woman, as well as Brand's reputation as a partying prankster, the remake appears to be an appropriate starring vehicle for Brand, should he choose to appear in the film.
