New writers for Pink Panther sequel
All news for "Pink Panther 2, The"
Ganz and Mandel rewrite "Pink Panther" sequel
12 January 2007
There may be a ray of light where the next "Pink Panther" movie is concerned. Despite the fact it got a critical mauling, Steve Martin‘s turn as Inspector Clouseau in last year‘s update of classic franchise proved quite a success at the box office and a follow–up was quickly organized. But now Columbia Pictures have called in veteran comedy screenwriters Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel to rewrite Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber‘s script to – hopefully – ensure some laughs
Ganz and Mandel have previously over–hauled scripts for hits including "Hitch", "50 First Dates" and "National Treasure" so let‘s hope they can work their magic on "Pink Panther 2". Levy meanwhile, who is currently enjoying great success with "Night At The Museum", will only executive produce the sequel.
