Matthau’s an Einstein

Walter Matthau has been cast to star as Albert Einstein in Paramount’s romantic comedy “I.Q.,” which is due to go before the cameras next month with Meg Ryan and Tim Robbins also starring.

The project, directed and produced by Fred Schepisi, is the story of Einstein stepping in to play matchmaker for his niece (Ryan) when he believes she has gotten engaged to the wrong man.

He thinks she should marry a car mechanic (Robbins) and thus passes him off as a genius.

The script was written by Andy Breckman with a polish by Michael Leeson. It was developed by Sandollar Prods. Sandy Gallin and Scott Rudin are exec producers and Schepisi and Carol Baum are producing.

Matthau, whose career has been busy of late with “Dennis the Menace” and “Grumpy Old Men,” is repped by Leonard Hirshen at the William Morris Agency.
