Russell Brand - Russell Brand To Play Cupid?

Russell Brand is in talks to star in and produce new movie 'Cupid'.

The 'Rock of Ages' actor - whose divorce from singer Katy Perry was finalised last month - is set to play the titular character in Joe Nussbaum's romantic comedy after Warner Bros. acquired the pitch for the 37-year-old comedian and Nik Linnen to produce.

The motion picture is set in the present day and will see Cupid - who is expected to be a more cynical version of the Greek God of affection, desire and love - tasked with creating a perfect romance, Variety reports.

Russell is also thought to be in talks to take on the lead role in raunchy comedy 'Pierre Pierre', which tells the story of a Frenchman who believes the human race has no meaning or purpose and embarks on a tricky journey from Paris to London to transport a stolen Mona Lisa painting.

The 'Despicable Me 2' star's latest movie role saw him portray Sunset Strip nightclub manager Lonny Barnett in 'Rock of Ages' alongside Tom Cruise, Alec Baldwin, Julianne Hough and Catherine Zeta-Jones.
