Mirren Joins Brand in ‘Arthur’ Remake


As it turns out, I will be interviewing Russell Brand tomorrow for his upcoming comedy Get Him to the Greek, which means I’ll have the chance to ask him what he thinks about the fact he will now be starring opposite Helen Mirren in the upcoming Arthur remake for Warner Bros. and director Jason Winer.

The original, 1981 Oscar-winning comedy starred Dudley Moore as the title character, a boozy playboy rascal who is set to inherit a fortune if he marries an heiress his family thinks will make something out of him. However, he falls in love with a working-class woman and turns to his valet for help when his family makes him choose between money and love.
