The biographer of Peter Sellers is delighted with a new film adaptation of his book on the legendary actor - because stars like Geoffrey Rush and CHARLIZE THERON are starring in it.

Roger Lewis, author of The Life and Death of Peter Sellers, is flabbergasted at the cast of the new film - which began shooting last week (ends18APR03).

He says, "It's absolutely marvellous. It seems that every little role has a star in it."
