Comedy legend Mel Brooks (83) is to come out of retirement to star in a film that mocks the recent panic over the Swine Flu outbreak, Paramount Pictures confirmed Monday. The film, described by Paramount as a "madcap comedy" will be called "Schwine Flu" - a similar play on words was used in the 1987 Mel Brooks "Star Wars" parody "Spaceballs" in which "The Force" was replaced with "The Schwartz". Gene Wilder, star of several Mel Brooks movies including "The Producers" (1968) is also rumored to be among the cast.
