Reclusive actor Marlon Brando is in final negotiations to star as himself in “Brando and Brando,” a low-budget movie about disenfranchisement and broken spirits.

The $5.5 million project details the story of a young innocent with a fascination for the American dream -- embodied by the iconic Brando -- on a journey of hope to the United States. Brando has played an active role in the development of the project, which is scheduled to shoot this summer on location in Tunisia and Los Angeles.

Writer/director Ridha Behi describes his screenplay as “a path to explore the desperately unfair conflict between Western technological and materialistic power and those many human beings whose only weapons are their identity and their timeless values.”

Brando was last in theaters with “The Score,” a 2001 heist movie starring Robert De Niro and Edward Norton.
