Branded Films

Once an actor reaches a certain level of success in the acting world, the next step up the ladder for them is usually to form a production company and start getting their name put on all of their films as producers. It’s kind of like how all of the biggest rappers have a clothing line. Not one to be outdone by rappers, British comedian/actor Russell Brand has his own company named Branded Films, and through it he will be co-producing his next starring vehicle, The President Stole My Girlfriend. Though this seems to be one of those movies with a fairly self-explanatory title, I’ll let Brand explain the film to you himself. When talking about the new movie to The Hollywood Reporter he said, “In this movie, the president steals the girlfriend of a sexy hippie—me, obviously. It was inspired by the night I naively invited [Warners president] Jeff Robinov for dinner.” Random zings to Jeff Robinov aside, The President Stole My Girlfriend was actually written by Matt Portenoy, who recently did a well liked re-write of the in-development Porky’s remake, and who is now making his first big sale with this script going to Brand and his new Warner Bros.-based company.
