Paul Rudd will take on the lead role in My Idiot Brother for director Jesse Peretz (Important Things with Demetri Martin). The project focuses on a man who, "crashes into the homes of his three ambitious sisters and, in succession, brings truth, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives while also wreaking havoc."
Rudd is at the top of his game right now. This summer, he has Dinner for Schmucks with Steve Carell and Zach Galifianakis. The Paramount release is bound to do solid business.
