While the Russell Brand headlining remaking of Arthur was filming on location in New York City earlier this year, there were lots of paparazzi giving us photos of the shoot and how Brand and the rest of the cast looked in character. Thanks to the New York Times, we now have an official look at Brand as the drunken playboy who falls for an average girl.
The Times article talks about how the script was constantly being tweeked on the set. News like that can either indicate that things are going badly or they are going very well. Given the presence of Greta Gerwig in the cast as Brand’s love interest, with her background in indie semi-improvisational films, I’m leaning towards the “going very well” side.
Arthur hits theaters next year.
