Russell Brand To Star In RENTAGHOST For Warner Bros.

Russell Brand to star in Rentaghost from Warner Bros.!

Warner has acquired the rights to the film which will be based on a British comedy series of called Bob Block which aired on BBC1 from 76-84.
Russell Brand (Get Him to the Greek) will star in the lead role of the feature. The movie version of this show is described as a Beetlejuice-style afterlife comedy according to Deadline.
Brand would play Fred Mumford, “a recently deceased guy determined to be more productive as a corpse than he was during his life as a slacker. He attempts to set himself up in a business with a couple of other ghouls, starting a temp agency for the dead. Mumford and cohorts rent out ghouls and ghosts to the living, until things go awry.”
Sounds like an interesting story and a good role for Brand.  What are your thoughts of this news?
