Brand is currently developing two comedies and admits he would love to be in charge of both projects.

He tells the Associated Press, "They're both comedy vehicles and I really want to direct them because I think it's a good way, as a comedian, to showcase what you do."

One of Brand's films is about an English soccer player stranded in Texas who is forced to teach high school kids about the sport, and the other, to be produced by Adam Sandler, follows a con-man posing as a priest.
