Filmmaker Kevin Smith is furious funnyman Steve Martin agreed to star in the remake of comedy classic PINK PANTHER - and hopes fans remain true to the originals by boycotting it when it comes out.

Martin plays the part of INSPECTOR CLOUSEAU, which Peter Sellers had in the four original films, and Smith fears he won't live up to the role.

He complains, "Who the f**k is going to go and see a Pink Panther movie that doesn't have Peter Sellers in it?"

I urge you to shut the f**k up. This is complete bullsh*t! The only reason studios are remaking so many films is because they have run out of talented writers and good scripts. History has shown that every Pink Panther film without Peter Sellers have completely FLOPPED. Steve Martin is soooooooooo not the person for this role... in fact, no one is except Sellers. He hasn't been funny since Saturday Night Live.
