Steve Martin Thinking ‘Pink’
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) – “The Pink Panther” is sliding toward Steve Martin. The actor has emerged as MGM’s top choice to play Inspector Jacques Clouseau in a redo of the 1964 feature.
A studio spokesman confirmed that MGM is in talks with Martin about toplining the project, and sources said he read the project over the weekend and is expected to decide shortly.
The original “Pink Panther” starred Peter Sellers as the bumbling French detective on the trail of a slippery jewel thief. Sellers kept the franchise going in four subsequent features, while Roger Moore and Alan Arkin also took turns in Clouseau’s trench coat.
Ivan Reitman and his Montecito Picture Co. are producing the remake with Reitman attached to direct. Martin, last in theaters with the hit comedy “Bringing Down the House,” returns on Christmas Day with Fox’s “Cheaper by the Dozen.”
