One-time Michael Myers opponent, Paul Rudd (funnily enough, when I interviewed Paul Rudd a couple of years back he couldn’t even remember the name of the “Halloween” sequel he’d been in! Must have been as memorable a shoot as it was a film!), will star in “My Idiot Brother”, a Big Apple-filmed comedy from director Jason Peretz.
According to THR, “Idiot” “sees Rudd playing an idealist dealing with his overbearing mother who 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.”
The script is written by Peretz’s sister, Evgenia Peretz, along with David Schisgall.
Producer Anthony Bregman says, “Everyone on Earth who has a brother has an idiot brother. 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?”
Rudd and Peretz had previously worked together on the 2001 comedy “The Chateau”.
