Martin Scorsese adds a few more to his impressive “Hugo Cabret” ensemble


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Emily Mortimer (“Shutter Island”) and Michael Stuhlbarg (“A Serious Man”) have joined the ensemble cast of Martin Scorsese’s adventure film “Hugo Cabret,” shooting now in London.

The live action 3D film, based on Brian Selznick’s New York Times best-seller, The Invention of Hugo Cabret, already stars Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa Butterfied and Chloe Moretz. Scorsese’s film is written by John Logan and produced by Scorsese, Graham King, Tim Headington and Johnny Depp.

Of course, this is the first film Scorsese is shooting in 3D, and curious fans will want to know how he utilizes this semi-polarizing technology. The story follows Hugo, an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. When he encounters a broken machine, an eccentric girl, and the cold, reserved man who runs the toy shop, he is caught up in a magical, mysterious adventure that could put all of his secrets in jeopardy. Sounds like a Terry Gilliam film to us, but I’m definitely intrigued at Scorsese’s approach to this interesting material.

Also appearing in the “Hugo Cabret” cast will be Oscar nominee Jude Law (“Sherlock Holmes”), Ray Winstone (“Edge of Darkness”), Christopher Lee (“Lord of the Rings”), Helen McCrory (“The Special Relationship”), Frances de la Tour (“Alice In Wonderland”), and Richard Griffiths (“The History Boys”).

“Hugo Cabret” is due in theaters on Dec. 9, 2011.
