It looks like Russell Brand is a movie star now. After his latest effort with Get him to the Greek, he is set to star in a remake of 80’s classic Arthur.
Rumour has it that Jennifer Garner is set to play his love interest and Oscar winner Helen Mirren already is confirmed to star in it.
This version has been rewritten by Peter Baynham, known for writing Borat and will be directed by Jason Winer.
Arthur, originally stared Dudley Moore as a drunk who was heir of a large fortune which he would only get if he married a woman he did not love. It’s a pretty classic film that we can definitely see Russell Brand in.
The film is reportedly going to start being shot next month.
