Russell Brand has landed the lead in RentaGhost, an upcoming Warner Bros. film based on a British comedy series of the same name. The show followed the exploits of a recently deceased man who goes to work at a temp agency for the dead.

This is Brand's second high-profile remake, with Arthur set to hit theaters next year. It also gives me hope for a remake of "The Young Ones" with Brand playing the role of Rick Pratt. (Variety)
