You can't accuse Russell Brand of not broadening his horizons.

He is officially attached to star in and produce The President Stole My Girlfriend , a comedy newly picked up by Warner Bros.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter , Brand said that "In this movie, the president steals the girlfriend of a sexy hippie – me, obviously.”

This one has been scribed by Matt Portenoy, who most recently put his skills to use for a rewrite of the currently in-development Porky ’s remake.

Brand, who starred in Warner Bros’ Arthur remake, will next be seen in Rock Of Ages alongside Tom Cruise, and will appear in Lamb Of God , the directorial debut of Juno writer Diablo Cody.
