Emily Mortimer and Michael Stuhlbarg have joined the ensemble cast of "Hugo Cabret," Martin Scorsese's first foray into family adventure and 3D.
The movie, an adaptation of Brian Selznick's best-seller "The Invention of Hugo Cabret," is in production in London and is being produced by Scorsese, Graham King, Tim Headington and Johnny Depp.
"Cabret" centers on Hugo (Asa Butterfield), an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. When he encounters a broken machine, an eccentric girl (Chloe Moretz) and a cold, reserved man (Ben Kingsley) who runs a toy shop, he is caught up in a magical, mysterious adventure that could put all of his secrets in jeopardy.
Mortimer plays the station's flower shop girl, Lisette, and Stuhlbarg plays Rene Tabard, a film restorer. They join a cast that includes Sacha Baron Cohen, Jude Law, Christopher Lee and Ray Winstone.
"Cabret" reunites Mortimer with Scorsese, having appeared in the director's "Shutter Island." Her other credits include "Harry Brown," "Lars and the Real Girl" and Woody Allen's "Match Point." The actress, repped by ICM and Brillstein Entertainment Partners, next stars opposite Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks and Zooey Deschanel in the comedy "My Idiot Brother."
Stuhlbarg, repped by ICM and Viking Entertainment, received a Golden Globe nomination for his work in the Coen brothers' "A Serious Man" and next co-stars as crime boss Arnold Rothstein in the Scorsese-directed pilot and HBO series "Boardwalk Empire."
