British funny man Russell Brand may be headed back to movie theaters in "Pierre, Pierre," a politically incorrect romp of a comedy (via Variety). Larry Charles is set to direct the film, bringing raunchy-comedy cred to the project having previously directed "Borat" and "Bruno".
In the film, Brand would play an obnoxious Frenchman who steals the Mona Lisa and tries to transport it from Paris to London. Encountering numerous roadblocks along the way including a "French police inspector, a serial killer named Pigeons--t and his own brothel-owning mother," it doesn't sound like any easy task.
