Brand will star in a new adaptation of the 1991 film, which originally featured Brit comedian Rik Mayall and actress Phoebe Cates.
The film tells the tale of a woman who returns to her parents' home after she is fired from her job and dumped by her husband, only to be reacquainted with her anarchic childhood imaginary pal.

British actor Rik Mayall has apologised to theatre-goers after he forgot his lines during a performance of THE NEW STATESMAN, forcing the show to be abandoned.
The Drop Dead Fred star, who plays ALAN B'STARD in the stage adaptation of the 1980s television series, repeatedly stumbled over his lines at last night's (16JAN07) production, and even resorted to reading straight from the script after referring to Deputy Prime Minister JOHN PRESCOTT as "GORDON PRESCOTT".
He says, "I was in the dentist, I was having three teeth pulled out, I'm sorry. I didn't have time to learn this."
Actress PHOEBE CATES KLINE is stunning fans and peers by staffing her own New York boutique.
The Drop Dead Fred star, who is married to Kevin Kline, opened the Blue Tree toy store on Madison Avenue last year (05) but her friends and fans didn't expect to see her behind the counter.
And when Dana Delany and Timothy Hutton dropped by during a break in filming new TV show KIDNAPPED they were stunned to come face to face with Cates Kline.
Delany recalls, "Tim and I took a walk up Madison Avenue and I said, 'I think Phoebe Cates' store is here,' and it was right on the corner from where we were shooting.
"It's a wonderful store called Blue Tree. We walked in and there was Phoebe; she works at her own store!"
Delany is now hooked on the kid's gift store and urges all visitors to New York to check it out: "It's a really good store with a mixture of really interesting clothes and little interesting finds."
