Brand set for Drop Dead Fred remake
The film tells the tale of a woman who returns to her parents' home after she is fired from her job and dumped by her husband, only to be reacquainted with her anarchic childhood imaginary pal.
Confirming the news on his Twitter.com page, Brand says, "Drop Dead Fred - true. Arthur - true, Kinky Bible - a film I will never make."
The original Drop Dead Fred failed to set the box office alight, only taking £9.4 million in America, but went on to become a cult hit. Arthur fared much better first time round - garnering £58.5 million in the U.S.
