Jude Law set for 'Hugo Cabret,' Gore Verbinski to helm 'Walter Mitty' remake

Posted on

  • Jude Law is set to star alongside Christopher Lee, Ray Winstone, Frances de la Tour, and Richard Griffiths in the 3-D Hugo Cabret, directed by Martin Scorsese. Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, and Chloe Moretz have already signed onto the film, based on the National Book Award-winning novel about an orphan living in a Paris train station who tries to solve the mystery of a broken robot who just hasn’t been the same since seeing A.I. [THR]
  • Gore Verbinski will direct 20th Century Fox’s update of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty. The original 1947 film followed a “day-dreaming editor who can’t seem to do anything right, so [he] imagines all sorts of exciting lives for himself.” There’s another reason that sounds familiar. [Variety]
  • Angela Bassett will play Paula Patton’s mother in wedding-themed comedy Jumping the Broom. [THR]
  • Heather Graham is set to play Aunt Opal in Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer. [Variety]
  • Snaps for Get Him to the Greek‘s Kali Hawk: The actress has been tapped for Kristen Wiig’s Bridesmaids and indie comedy Let Go. [THR]
  • Claire Forlani and Peter Mooney will join the cast of Starz’s Camelot, which already stars Joseph Fiennes and Eva Green. Mooney will play Arthur’s brother; Forlani is set for Arthur’s mother. Which begs the question, which is worse: marrying Uther, or sitting through all three hours of Meet Joe Black? [Deadline]
  • See Rev. See Rev Run on the Style network, which has nabbed rights to MTV’s Run’s House, which stars the run-D.M.C. rapper (né Joseph Simmons) and his family. [THR]
