Warner Bros. Funding "The Invention of Hugo Cabret"



Warner Bros. Pictures once again joins forces with Graham King to make a big screen version of Brian Selznick's children novel "The Invention of Hugo Cabret."

Extending their solid collaboration, Warner Bros. Pictures and Graham King's Initial Entertainment Group are set to develop a family feature titled "The Invention of Hugo Cabret" with a hope for Martin Scorsese to helm.

An adaptation of Brian Selznick's best-selling book of the same name, the project revolves around a 12-year-old orphan who lives in the walls of a Paris train station in 1930 and a mystery involving the boy, his late father and a robot. No word yet on production schedule, but it is revealed that "The Aviator" scribe John Logan has already been tapped to pen the screenplay.

A frequent collaborator to each other in making films, Warner and King recently backed up Scorsese's "The Departed" and have teamed up once again to support the famed filmmaker in his next work, "Silence." In addition, the two also form pact with Johnny Depp in some of his future projects such as "A Long Way Down", and "The People's Act of Love."
