London , Dec 17 (ANI): British comedian Russell Brand could soon be the next big thing in Hollywood , what with having a movie written just for him.

And its not only the preview audience that has been left impressed but also award-winning writer and director Judd Apatow.
So bowled over by Brands performance was Apatow that he is penning a lead role especially for the bed-hopping star, a movie source revealed.
Russell isnt a big name in the States, but audiences there said hes the best thing in the film, The Sun quoted the source, as saying.
Hes very talented and could become huge in Hollywood . Im sure hed enjoy that, said the source.
