Johnny Depp has been attached as a producer on the project for awhile. Martin Scorsese quickly purchased Brian Selznick’s The Invention Of Hugo Cabret for a future film adaptation.
And now that it began shooting, there is the very first set photo.
This first picture, originally published in Le Parisien, depicts Depp as M. Rouleau, along with rising star Chloe Moretz as Isabella and Asa Butterfield as Hugo.
In addition to Depp and Moretz, Jude Law, Ben Kingsley andSacha Baron Cohen are officially signed to the project. Rumor has it, that Scorsese wants to go all 3D. Even if I’m not a fan of 3D, if Scorsese does it, it can only be great.
