Helen Mirren and Russell Brand? Hollywood’s Weirdest Matchup
The unlikely duo is set to star in the upcoming movie, Arthur.
Here’s something we never thought we’d see: Helen Mirren and Russell Brand co-starring in a movie together. But, the classy dame and the British bad boy may indeed come together for Arthur, Warner Bros. new project.
Originally a 1981 comedy, Arthur will tell the story of a party boy (Brand) who must choose to marry a heiress who will bring him lots of money, or his working-class love. Mirren is set to play Brand’s nanny. Interesting.
If Mirren does sign on to the project, shooting will begin in New York this July. We highly doubt this will be an award-winning role for the Oscar winner, but it could result in a few laughs, no? (Hollywood Reporter)
