Russell Brand will star in and produce the new comedy The President Stole My Girlfriend for Warner Bros.

Matt Portenoy, who recently finished a well-received draft of the long-in-development Porky's remake, has written this screenplay, which, according to Russell Brand, was inspired by the night he invited Warner Bros. President Jeffrey Robinov to dinner. The story will follow a "sexy hippie" who loses his girl to the head of state.

The project is the first set up under Russell Brand's Branded Films banner, and he will produce alongside creative partner Nik Linnen.
