Peter Sellers comedy makes a comeback


Director Jay Roach ("Austin Powers") has been hired to direct a new version of the classic Peter Sellers comedy "The Party", for MGM and DreamWorks. Variety says the original film starred Peter Sellers as an accident-prone Indian actor who is mistakenly invited to an A-list Hollywood party. He becomes a true party crasher, as his clumsiness leads to the destruction of everything in sight. MGM is also remaking Sellers’ The Pink Panther.
