The President will steal Russell Brand’s girlfriend

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Russell Brand will star in and produce the comedy The President Stole My Girlfriend for Warner Brothers.

The film was written by Matt Portenoy, whose credits to date include writing a segment for Movie 43, due out in 2012, and submitting a rewrite of the Porky’s remake currently in development.

Brand talked about the film, saying, “In this movie, the president steals the girlfriend of a sexy hippie—me, obviously. It was inspired by the night I naively invited [Warners president] Jeff Robinov for dinner.”

Brand will produce with Nik Linnen for his Branded Films, and Beau Bauman will executive produce. The film marks not only the first major project for screenwriter Portenoy, but also the first project established by Brand under his new banner.

Brand will next be seen in Rock of Ages, the New Line adaptation of the hit Broadway musical due for release mid 2012.
