brand-pierre-200.jpgLOS ANGELES, California (X17online) - Russell Brand is in talks to star in the raunchy comedy Pierre Pierre, which is about "an obnoxious French nihilist who embarks upon an obstacle-filled journey from Paris to London when he transports a stolen painting," according to Variety.

Brand's character "stumbles upon a serial killer named Pigeonsh*t, a French policeman and his own brothel-owning mother in the politically incorrect road movie."

Larry Charles, who directed Sacha Baron Cohen in Borat and The Dictator will direct this film, and though Brand seems like a perfect fit for the role, Jim Carrey and Jason Reitman were originally attached to the project.
