Garner, Nolte Up For “Arthur” Remake

Jennifer Garner and Nick Nolte are in talks to join the cast of the “Arthur” remake for Warner Bros. Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.

Jason Winer directs and Peter Baynham penned the script for the new incarnation of the Dudley Moore comedy classic about a drunken millionaire playboy (Russell Brand) who stands to inherit a fortune if he marries an heiress.

However he’s fallen for a charismatic shoplifter (Greta Gerwig) and risks his trust fund to take a chance on this woman who makes him feel alive.

Garner will play the heiress while Nolte is her deeply religious father. Helen Mirren also stars.

Larry Brezner, Kevin McCormick and Chris Bender are producing.
