Hollywood funnyman Steve Martin is to fill PETER SELLERS' shoes after agreeing to play the role of bumbling INSPECTOR JACQUES CLOUSEAU in a new Pink PANTHER movie.

The PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES star will play the French detective - the signature role of the late Sellers, who died in 1980.

The forthcoming film will be directed by Ghostbusters director IVAN REITMAN.
