Kevin Kline is reportedly in talks to play Chief Inspector Drefus in the new version of The Pink Panther.
He would team up with Steve Martin who will recreate the role of Inspector Clouseau made famous by the later Peter Sellers, says Hollywood Reporter.
In the original Pink Panther films, Inspector Dreyfus was played by Herbert Lom, who originated the role in 1964's A Shot in the Dark.
Beyonce Knowles and Jean Reno also star in the project which starts shooting this May in New York, followed by Paris, for MGM and director Shawn Levy.
