Drop Dead Fred to be remade with Russell Brand

April 29, 2009 by Clark 

For someone who is famous for being a lewd, pointless individual, Russell Brand seems to be doing okay for himself, doesn’t he? Now comes news that he will be taking the starring role in a remake of the cult classic DROP DEAD FRED. The original movie starred comedy legend Rik Mayall alongside Phoebe Cates, and followed the antics of an imaginary friend who returns to a woman’s life when she is an adult.

The original film was very much of its time, so I’m not too sure how this is going to work out. Brand certainly doesn’t have the charisma and comic timing of Mayall, or his impish presence, so chances are this is going to be a dud.

It’s a shame, as DROP DEAD FRED has one of the most interesting premises for a comedy movie, and something that hasn’t been done to death by a million other films. It’ll be interesting to see how things develop with this project, but for now, our advice would be to get a different star.
