Renowned director Martin Scorsese is reportedly trying to helm the film adaptation of “The Invention of Hugo Cabret,” an award-winning children’s book.
“Story centers on a 12-year-old orphan named Hugo, who lives in a train station and must finish what his late father started by solving the mystery of a broken robot. Project would mark Scorsese’s first foray into kid lit — a genre that is attracting a number of high-profile directors including Wes Anderson (“The Fantastic Mr. Fox”) and Spike Jonze (“Where the Wild Things Are”), whose films are resonating with adult audiences.” – Variety
The book won the Randolph Caldecott Medal for distinguished children’s literature in 2008 and consists of 533 pages. The screenplay was written by John Logan, who also wrote the screenplay for Scorsese’s Aviator.
