Soon the film will simply be called ‘H.’ I’m very excited to see footage from Martin Scorsese‘s new film, which is his first 3D project, and his first aimed at a family audience. Based on the book The Invention of Hugo Cabret, the film had until recently been called simply Hugo Cabret, but has now evidently undergone another title change, and will be known to the world as Hugo.

Martin Scorsese is finishing up Hugo Cabret, his first foray into family films and 3D. The film is based on Brian Selznick‘s children’s book The Invention of Huog Cabret, and has nods to the early days of cinema and science fiction.
We’ve known the cast for some time; Asa Butterfield and Chloë Moretz as an orphan boy and strange little girl who become friends in a Paris train station, with support from Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer, Jude Law, Michael Stuhlbarg, Ray Winstone, and more.
But it turns out there is a pretty impressive cameo in the film, which was revealed via a photo posted in a French outlet. That photo and info on the cameo is after the break — don’t go further if you don’t want some small spoilers — as is a photo of one of the pieces of technology in the film. Read More »
Almost exactly one year from today, we’ll all get our chance to see a 3D Martin Scorsese movie. But there won’t be any baseball bat beatings or vice head squishing in this film. Based on the book by Brian Selznick, Hugo Cabret is about a young boy (Asa Butterfield) who secretly lives in a Paris train station and winds up on a magical adventure. The incredible cast also includes Chloe Moretz, Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Jude Law, Ray Winstone, Christopher Lee, Emily Mortimer, Michael Stuhlbarg, Helen McCrory, Frances de la Tour and Richard Griffiths.
We’ve already seen a glimpse of what Moretz and Butterfield’s lead characters look like and now we’ve got a peak at two of the important characters who work in the train station, played by Cohen and Kingsley. Hugo Cabret is scheduled for release in 3D on December 9, 2011. Check out the full images and more after the break. Read More »

We’ve known for a while that Martin Scorsese was about to commence principal photography on his adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret, which will be shot as his first 3D film. The primary cast has also been known for a while: Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Asa Butterfield and Chloe Moretz.
Usually I wouldn’t post the press release that announces the start of filming, but this one includes a few notable details. One is that the title is now just Hugo Cabret. There are also quite a few additional actors we hadn’t reported before. Quite a few of them, like Jude Law and Ray Winstone — not exactly minor names — are notable enough to warrant the mention.

Just yesterday we heard that Martin Scorsese‘s adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret was looking to add Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley to the cast. Now it looks like the two lead child actors have been chosen, as well. Asa Butterfield will play the titular Hugo Cabret, and Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) will play “an eccentric, bookish girl” who comes into Hugo’s life as he navigates the Parisian train station where he lives.
