Martin Scorsese Brings 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret' to the Screen
"Somebody tell Pesci to get off my wife's leg."
Martin Scorsese is reteaming with producer Graham King (The Departed) to adapt The Invention on Hugo Cabret as his next project after Shutter Island. The Brian Selznick book is being adapted by John Logan and tells the story of a 12-year old orphan who lives in a Parisian train station who tries to fix his dead father's broken robot.
I'm interested to see what Scorsese does with this youth-slanted source material. Up until this point, children have had to rely on Sesame Street characters acting out scenes from Casino if they want to enjoy the director's work.
