According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paul Rudd has inked a deal to star as the title character in My Idiot Brother from director Jesse Peretz.

Rudd will play an idealist who has to deal with his overbearing mother. He "crashes into the homes of his three ambitious sisters and, in succession, brings truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives while also wreaking havoc."

This film will begin shooting this July in New York. The parts of the sisters will be cast soon.

Peretz's sister, Evgenia Peretz, wrote the screenplay with David Schishall.

"Everyone on Earth who has a brother has an idiot brother," stated producer Anthony Bregman. "I come from a family of three brothers, so I know that better than anyone. And what could beat the prospect of working with Jesse and Paul, who are like brothers to each other to bring that message out into the world?"
