Universal is resurrecting the 1991 movie Drop Dead Fred as a starring vehicle for one trick pony, Russell Brand. Dennis McNicholas, a cowriter on the production company's upcoming Land of the Lost, will write the script based on the original, which starred Phoebe Cates as a woman who loses her job and her husband only to find her world further rocked by the appearance of a rambunctious imaginary friend from her childhood. The original was ridiculous fun, but I feel like maybe I watched it at just the right age to where it hold it somewhere in my heart. I still quote it sometimes...sometimes. What do you guys think?
