Butterfield and Moretz Joining Hugo Cabret


In addition to Sir Ben Kingsley and Sacha Baron Cohen, Martin Scorsese has also cast Asa Butterfield (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas) and Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass, Let Me In) in The Invention of Hugo Cabret.

The film, based on Brian Selznick’s magic-themed children’s novel, centers on an orphaned boy (Butterfield) who secretly lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station and looks after the clocks. He gets caught up in a mystery adventure when he attempts to repair a mechanical man.

Moretz will play the female lead role of Isabelle.
