American comedian Steve Martin has vowed to make his version of THE PINK PANTHER as raunchy as possible.

Martin is keen to update the new version of the Peter Sellers classic - in which he stars as the bumbling INSPECTOR CLOUSEAU alongside singing superstar Beyonce Knowles.

Martin says, "I'll update it by being filthy.

"The idea of Clouseau is timeless and classic.

"I grew up with the Pink Panther movies and remember just laughing and laughing.

"The thoughts of having other people have those movie memories is what I do it for - and the money."
