Brooks, Rudin re-team at Par

With Albert Brooks’ “Mother” waiting in the wings for her theatrical bow, Brooks and “Mother” producer Scott Rudin have sealed a deal for another comedy for Paramount Pictures, sources said.

Brooks will script, star in and direct a still untitled comedy for the studio, which releases his “Mother” to select cities on Christmas Day. The new project, the storyline of which is known only to Brooks, will be produced by Rudin and Brooks’ manager Herb Nanas, who also produced “Mother.” Brooks is expected to begin work on the project shortly.

“Mother,” which stars Brooks and Debbie Reynolds, is about a man’s complicated relationship with his mother. Lisa Kudrow and Rob Morrow also star. Brooks wrote the pic with frequent collaborator Monica Johnson and directed.

“Mother” is the latest addition to Brooks’ feature work. He also wrote, directed and starred in “Defending Your Life,” co-wrote, directed and starred in “Lost in America,” “Modern Romance” and “Real Life,” and co-wrote “The Scout.” He was repped on the deal by ICM’s Toni Howard, attorney Jake Bloom and Nanas.
