Billy Zane as Marlon Brando? We can see it. The "Titanic" baddie will star as the legendary actor in "Waltzing With Brando."

It's based on the 2011 memoir "Waltzing With Brando: Planning a Paradise in Tahiti," by Los Angeles-based architect Bernard Judge. It details his time in the early '70s with the Oscar-winning actor as they built an environmentally-sustainable private retreat in the South Pacific.

Per the Amazon synopsis: "The book is filled with amusing anecdotes about his famous client. It exposes Marlon Brando the man, not the actor, his foibles and eccentricities and regales the reader with Brando's ridiculous exploits with women."

Zane will executive produce with writer and director Bill Fishman, whose films include the 1988 comedy "Tapeheads."

Zane, who will forever be Kate Winslet's rich, mean fiance from "Titanic" to us (and, to a lesser extent, The Phantom), also appears in the Sky One street-racing series "Curfew" with Sean Bean.
