Kevin Kline is in negotiations to team up with Steve Martin in "The Pink Panther," which also stars R&B singer Beyonce Knowles and French veteran Jean Reno.
Director Shawn Levy ("Cheaper by the Dozen") starts shooting the MGM project in May in New York, followed by Paris.

Kline will play Chief Inspector Dreyfus, who needs an idiot to take over the investigation of the missing legendary "Pink Panther" diamond ring.

The person he needs is a fool who will divert public attention that in turn will make him look better when he solves the case himself. He then turns to Inspector Clouseau (Martin).

The increasing unstable Dreyfus was played by the inimitable Herbert Lom who originated the role in 1964's "A Shot in the Dark."

Kline next appears on the big screen as Cole Porter in "De-lovely," an MGM biopic based on the life of the legendary musician. The film is scheduled to unspool in May at Cannes.
