Pink Panther 2 and 3?!
Steve Martin is rumoured to be doing not one, but two sequels to his god awful "Pink Panther" redux for MGM and Sony.
There is one good bit of news, the people behind the camera seem to be improving. Martin is apparently now polishing a script by "Dodgeball" writer/director Rawson Marshall Thurber and Mike Saltzman that sees Inspector Clouseau placed on special assignment with Scotland Yard
Two sequels? What the hell is he thinking? At least Kevin Kline, Jean Reno, and Emily Mortimer are all being reported as declining the chance to appear in these epics, however Rachel Stevens is being considered for the female lead, a step down from Beyoncé Knowles...and that's the best news out of this entire story!
Can you believe that they've started working on scripts for this? At least the scriptwriters have improved, but still Martin is putting the finishing touches and I really doubt his comic ability these days, particularly after having the self-belief to try and take over from Peter Sellers.
