Sony Pictures and MGM have hired Scott Neustadter and Michael M. Weber to write the sequel of The Pink Panther.

The plot for the sequel is being kept under wraps, however The Hollywood Reporter says it has been described as high concept. Steve Martin is on board to reprise his role as Inspector Jacques Clouseau.

It's been good for the newcomers, Neustadter and Weber - along side The Pink Panther, the pair sold their romantic comedy script, (500) Days of Summer to Fox Searchlight.

Look for The Pink Panther sequel in theaters late next year.
