The Pink Panther: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kevin Kline is in negotiations to team up with Steve Martin in The Pink Panther for MGM and helmer Shawn Levy.

Shooting starts in May in New York, followed by Paris. Kline also joins Beyonce and Jean Reno in the Robert Simonds-produced project. It follows the story of chief Inspector Dreyfus (Kline), who needs an idiot to take over the investigation of the missing legendary "Pink Panther" diamond ring. The person he needs is a fool who will divert public attention that in turn will make him look better when he solves the case himself. He then turns to Inspector Clouseau (Martin).

In the "Pink Panther" films, Inspector Dreyfus was played by Herbert Lom, who originated the role in 1964's "A Shot in the Dark." Simonds is producing from a script by Martin.
