Jennifer Garner and Nick Nolte in Talks for Arthur


Jennifer Garner and Nick Nolte are in talks for Arthur, the upcoming remake of the 1981 comedy, claims The Hollywood Reporter.

The new version will see Russell Brand stepping into the role of the title character (played in the original by Dudley Moore): a young playboy would-be billionaire whose mother (Helen Mirren in the new film) threatens to give away his inheritance unless he marries.

Garner is said to play, “an heiress who carries her own secrets and whom Brand must marry” while Nolte would play her religious father.
