Russell Brand to Star in and Produce The President Stole My Girlfriend


Russell Brand will star in and produce The President Stole My Girlfriend at Warner Bros. Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter. The comedy was written by Matt Portenoy.

“In this movie, the president steals the girlfriend of a sexy hippie—me, obviously,” Brand said. “It was inspired by the night I naively invited [Warners president] Jeff Robinov for dinner.”

Producing with Brand is his Branded Films partner Nik Linnen, with the company’s Beau Bauman executive producing.

The trade says that Portenoy did a “well-received” rewrite on the upcoming Porky’s remake.
