Wes Anderson will write and possibly direct the remake of the 2006-released French film Mon Meilleur Ami for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment. The original film revolved around a prickly antiques dealer who finds out that none of his friends really like him due to his cranky demeanor. He makes a pricey bet (the prize is a valuable antique) with his business partner that he can make friends easily. He subsequently tries to bribe a cab driver to pose as his new best friend.
This will be the first Universal project for Anderson, known for his quirky films. Anderson also directed The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou and The Darjeeling Limited.
