Today we get news courtesy of /Film that actors Jude Law and Ray Winstone have joined the cast of the upcoming film Hugo Cabret, being directed by Martin Scorsese (Gangs of New York, The Departed).
Law and Winstone are joining an already pretty solid cast that includes Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat, Bruno), Ben Kingsley (Gandhi, Schindler’s List) and Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass). Jude Law (Repo Men, Alfie) and Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast, The Departed) are both dependable actors that rarely disappoint. They will be great additions to the already talented cast. The official press relese said that:
“Hugo Cabret, Scorsese’s first film shot in 3D, tells the tale of an orphan boy (Asa Butterfield) living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. When Hugo encounters a broken machine, an eccentric girl (Chloë Moretz), and the cold, reserved man who runs the toy shop (Ben Kingsley), he is caught up in a magical, mysterious adventure that could put all of his secrets in jeopardy.
Also appearing in the all-star cast are Academy Award® nominee Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes), Ray Winstone (London Boulevard), Christopher Lee (”The Lord of the Rings”), Helen McCrory (”The Special Relationship”), Frances de la Tour (Alice in Wonderland), and Richard Griffiths (The History Boys).”
Scorsese is a great director and he’s responsible for some of my favorite films. I’m sure he’ll once again do a great job with this film and I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
