Russell Brand is set to star and produce comedy The President Stole My Girlfriend.
The British funnyman revealed he may be playing a "sexy hippie" in the forthcoming film, which has been written by Matt Portenoy.
"In this movie, the president steals the girlfriend of a sexy hippie - me, obviously," he quipped to The Hollywood Reporter.
"It was inspired by the night I naively invited [Warner Bros president] Jeff Robinov for dinner," he added.
Next up for Russell, who was previously seen in the Arthur remake opposite Dame Helen Mirren, are roles in the big-screen adaptation of musical Rock Of Ages opposite Tom Cruise and Diablo Cody's upcoming directorial debut Lamb Of God.
