The life of "Brewster's Millions" keeps going on and on and on...

Beginning as a 1902 novel, then a play in 1906, the project has seen many film incarnations, including the popular 1945 movie starring Dennis O'Keefe, and the 1985 version starring Richard Pryor and John Candy.

Now, Warner Bros. has set Michael Diliberti and Matthew Sullivan to write the script for yet another film version of "Brewster's Millions."

The film tells the tale of a man who inherits $1 million from a rich grandfather. But when a rich uncle who hates the grandfather also dies, the man gets $7 million more but...he must spend the grandfather's million within a year! Ah...fairytale in this dire economy of ours. »
