Wes Anderson (The Life Aquatic, The Darjeeling Limited), is to write a new movie for Imagine Entertainment and Universal Pictures.

That movie is entitled My Best Friend, a remake of the French comedy "Mon meilleur ami." Anderson is also looking at the film as a potential directorial vehicle following his success of this years 'Darjeeling' and his upcoming take on The Fantastic Mr. Fox, which boats George Clooney among its vocal cast.

Variety says that My Best Friend, revolves around 'a cranky antiques dealer who learns at a dinner with his closest acquaintances that none of them really like him because of his harsh manner and selfishness. When his business partner bets him a valuable vase that he can't produce a best friend, the dealer tries to get an amiable cab driver to pose as his buddy.'

Brian Grazer will produce alongside Agnes Mentre.
