Gerwig Falls For The “Arthur” Remake

Greta Gerwig (“Greenberg”) is in discussions to play the female lead in the “Arthur” remake at Warner Bros. Pictures says Deadline.

Gerwig is in talks to play the charismatic shoplifter who tempts the titular drunk (Russell Brand) who risks his trust fund to take a chance on this woman who makes him feel alive.

The legendary Liza Minelli played the character in the original. Jason Winer (TV’s “Modern Family”) directs this remake which is being produced by Larry Brezner, Kevin McCormick and Chris Bender.
