Universal and Imagine have hired quirk auteur Wes Anderson to write and possibly direct My Best Friend a remake of the 2006 French comedy Mon meilleur ami. From Variety:

The French pic starred Daniel Auteuil as a cranky antiques dealer who learns at a dinner with his closest acquaintances that none of them really like him because of his harsh manner and selfishness. When his business partner bets him a valuable vase that he can’t produce a best friend, the dealer tries to get an amiable cab driver to pose as his buddy.

So Bill Murray as the cranky antiques dealer and Owen Wilson as the amiable cab driver? Yeah, I'll see that.
