This is AH-mazing in every conceivable way! We can't wait!
Russell Brand has reportedly made a first-look producing deal at Warner Bros, and now that he has completed production on the studios' Rock of Ages, will launch his new company, Branded Films, with he and partner Nik Linnen hiring Beau Bauman to take the helm!
Brand says in an HIGHlarious statement:
"We at the newly founded Branded Films are very excited to announce our new company and the opportunity for puns that it affords us. Russell Brand and Nik Linnen have coerced Beau Bauman into running our company. Our offices will be on the lot, our sincere hope is that we'll be in that water tower in which some of the Looney Tunes also live. For this we will expect a reduced rent. If you have any film ideas, send them to: Beau Bauman, the water tower, Warner Bros, Hollywood, America (care of E Fudd). We particularly welcome ideas that could feature a long-haired actor with an unintelligible accent (Rasputin/Tarzan/British Jesus). That's all folks."
Knowing him, this could quite possibility be the truth!
Someone look into that for us, please! Ha!
In all seriousness, though, we are VERY excited to see what comes out of this!
Get to work, boys!
