Veteran actor Marlon Brando is set to make a big screen comeback, playing himself in a low-budget drama.
Brando last appeared on screen in The Score in 2001
Brando and Brando, details of which have been revealed at Cannes, is about a young boy who heads for the US in search of the actor.
Shooting on the £3m project, to be directed by Tunisian filmmaker Ridha Behi, will begin this summer.
Brando, who recently turned 80, was last seen on screen in the 2001 crime drama The Score.
As well as starring in the film, the actor has been involved with the development of the project, including working on script revisions with the director.
The film's producer, Norma Heyman, said the script was "one of the best I have ever read in my life".
"Marlon Brando has turned down every single film - but Ridha's script has done the trick. It's very special."
Brando made his big screen debut in 1950 and has been nominated for an Oscar eight times, winning twice for On the Waterfront in 1955 and 1972's The Godfather.
He has also starred in such classics as The Wild One, A Streetcar Named Desire, Apocalypse Now and Last Tango in Paris.
He was paid $3m (£1.6m) for a cameo role in the 2001 thriller The Score, starring Robert de Niro and Edward Norton.
