The grace and class of Helen Mirren is about to collide with the raunchy debauchery of comedian Russell Brand in Warner. Bros' remake of Arthur, the 1981 comedy that starred the late Dudley Moore as a boozy rich boy who lives fast and plays hard and whose family wants him to marry an heiress in order to make an honest man out of him. He falls in love for a working class women instead, and stands to lose his fortune.
If she takes the role, Mirren, who is in negotiations to star, will play Arthur's longtime nanny. The role is a modern reconstruction and gender switch of the original role of a valet played by the late Sir Jon Gielgud, who won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his work.
The movie is scheduled to start shooting in July in New York.
