Thanksgiving release for Martin Scorsese's Hugo Cabret!
Paramount Pictures has stepped up to become the distributor of the Martin Scorsese-directed 3D film Hugo Cabret, with the studio locking a November 23 release date, the day before Thanksgiving. The adaptation of the Brian Selznick novel is produced and financed by GK Films and Graham King felt strongly that the five-day Thanksgiving holiday was the optimum time for the picture to open. Hugo Cabret was originally slated to be distributed by Sony Pictures, under GK Films' output deal. Sony had the film originally scheduled for a December 9 release and when the studio couldn't provide the requested Thanksgiving date, Sony Pictures agreed to let GK Films move the picture.
This book is so fantastic. I just really loved it! I can't wait to see how they bring it to the big screen. I know I sometimes have issues with book-to-movies (except I Am Number Four which was awesome, review), but I really think this one has some serious potential! If you haven't heard already, the cast includes Asa Butterfield, Chloe Moretz, Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Jude Law (sigh) and Emily Mortimer. Actually, that's who the cast includes, whether you've heard or not. :P
Wow, that is quite a cast!! Have you read/look at this book? What do you think of their picks? We're excited for this one!!
