Russell Brand is set to bring classic BBC kids' show RENTAGHOST back from the dead - he's signed up to star in a big screen version of the beloved British comedy series.
Brand is expected to take on the role of recently deceased layabout Fred Mumford, who creates his own business in the afterlife by renting out ghosts to the living.
The popular series ran on Britain's BBC channels for eight years over the 1970s and 1980s.
Brand is also set to executive produce the venture, which is expected to start filming next year (11).
