Variety reports that Ed Helms (‘The Hangover2,’ ‘The Office’) is to team up with Ben Stiller to develop an English-language remake of the 2010 French comedy ‘Le Mac.’
Directed by Pascal Bourdiaux, the original follows a mild-mannered banker forced to masquerade as a notorious gangster and pimp. Helms will produce along with taking the lead in the movie. Stiller will produce under his Red Hour banner.
The screenplay will be provided by Johnny Rosenthal (‘Bad Santa 2’).
