Russell Brand will star in The Hauntrepreneur.

The Arthur and Hop actor will lead the cast of Paramount Pictures' supernatural children's tale, reports Variety.

The film centres on a family who hire an 'hauntrepreneur' to build a haunted house for them in their new neighbourhood.

Con Air and High Fidelity screenwriter Scott Rosenberg sold his original script for the movie to Paramount last year. The studio has not yet commented on the casting.

Transformers: Dark of the Moon producer Michael Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller (Vigilandia) will produce through their company Platinum Dunes.

Brand is due to star in the upcoming Adam Shankman musical Rock of Ages alongside Tom Cruise, Julianne Hough, Catherine Zeta Jones, Mary J Blige and Alec Baldwin.

He was previously linked to the similarly-themed movie Rentaghost, which currently has Ben Stiller attached in the starring role.
