Filmmaker Kevin Smith is furious funnyman Steve Martin agreed to star in the remake of comedy classic PINK PANTHER - and hopes fans remain true to the originals by boycotting it when it comes out.

Martin plays the part of INSPECTOR CLOUSEAU, which Peter Sellers had in the four original films, and Smith fears he won't live up to the role.

He complains, "Who the f**k is going to go and see a Pink Panther movie that doesn't have Peter Sellers in it?"
