Paul Rudd has signed on to star in My Idiot Brother. Take a guess what kind of movie it is? Yup, a comedy! Rudd has 4 films in production and all of them are comedies. The guy knows what he’s good at and he just sticks to it!
My Idiot Brother is about a man, Ned (Rudd) who happens to be an idealist. His three sisters are the opposite. They are all ambitious and their mother is overbearing. Ned crashes at each of their homes one at a time and brings truth and happiness into their lives by causing havoc.
Producer Anthony Bregman stated, "We love this movie because it's a universal theme. Everyone on earth who has a brother has an idiot brother. I come from a family of three brothers, so I know that better than anyone. And what could beat the prospect of working with Jesse and Paul --who are like brothers to each other-- to bring that message out into the world."
The screenplay was written by Evgenia Peretz and David Schisgall. Caroline Jaczko, Stefanie Azpiazu and Aleen Keshishian will executive produce the film.
What a great title for a movie! Let’s just hope the movie is as funny as it sounds.
Production will begin sometime in July in New York and the release is planned for some time in 2011.
