Brando returns to the big screen
Details of the £3 million movie were revealed during the Cannes film festival this week.
"Brando and Brando" tells the story of a young man fascinated by the American dream who journeys to the US to meet his idol - Marlon Brando.
The movie is scheduled to start shooting this summer on location in Tunisia and Los Angeles.
As well as starring in the film, Brando has been involved with the development of the project, including working on script revisions with the director.
80-year-old Brando was last seen in a cameo role in 2001 heist movie "The Score" alongside Robert De Niro and Edward Norton.
