Beyonce in the Pink

03.05.2004

First it was rumored that Beyonce Knowles would star in the big-budget remake of SUPERMAN as Lois Lane. Now comes word that she'll match up against another hero in a big-budget remake. Beyonce is in talks to star as Inspector Clouseau's chief suspect in the upcoming THE PINK PANTHER film. Steve Martin has signed on to play the bumbling detective Clouseau as he searches for the missing "Pink Panther" diamond. Also joining the cast will be Jean Reno (THE PROFESSIONAL) who will star as Ponton, Clouseau's driver who's actually an undercover officer assigned to keep an eye on the Inspector. Beyonce would star as Xania, a pop star who becomes suspect #1 after her husband, who owned the diamond, turns up dead. Martin's CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN director Shawn Levy will direct the film from a script by Len Blum (with a polish by Martin). MGM had long looked to get a PINK PANTHER remake off the ground and had to looked to everyone from Mike Myers to Chris Tucker to fill the legendary shoes of Peter Sellers in the role. Eventually they set their sites on Martin who agreed, after much convincing by the studio (in other words they threw a lot of cash at him). Filming is scheduled to begin this summer for a 2005 release.
