Steve Martin In New Comedy Romp

British actress HELENA BONHAM CARTER is to star with STEVE MARTIN in a new comedy about a dentist.

In the film NOVOCAINE (2001), funnyman Martin will play a successful dentist whose life is thrown into turmoil by the arrival of his wayward brother.

The $26 million (20 million) movie will also star LAURA DERN as Martin's fiancee, and ELIAS KOTEAS as his brother.

PLANET OF THE APES (2001) star Bonham Carter plays a patient who seduces Martin, causing further chaos.

The film, due for release later this year (01), has been written and directed by DAVID ATKINS. A movie source says, "Helena is hysterical. She has been waiting for a good comedy venture for some time. " (RP/WNWCAN/KMW)
