Scorsese considering Caldecott-Winning Hugo Cabret

The Invention of Hugo CabretWith Shutter Island ready to be released February 19th, Martin Scorsese is considering a slightly different type of novel for his next movie. The Invention of Hugo Cabret, written and wonderfully illustrated by Brian Selznick.

According to Variety, GK Films, which owns the rights to the novel, is shopping it around to various studios, including Sony and Paramount, and they are also holding talks with Scorsese about coming on to direct. The project would reunite him with his The Departed producer Graham King and his Aviator screenwriter John Logan.

The 2008 Caldecott Award-winning novel is set in 1930’s Paris and follows the adventures of the titular Hugo as he lives in the walls of a train station, trying to repair a broken clockwork automaton and discover the mystery behind it after his father passes away. The book in part takes its inspiration from film, as renowned film-maker Georges Méliès (A Trip to the Moon, 1902) plays a part.
