IAR had the chance to sit down with the ever so lovely Gerwig while she was promoting her latest romcom - No Strings Attached. While we mostly discussed sex and movies (look for the full interview closer to the film’s release) she also spoke about working with such talented folks as Brand and Mirren.
It was amazing! It’s so great. It was so much fun… Playing with Russell was just tremendously fun, but it is really sweet too. I mean, the original movie is kind of strange actually and [the remake] has some of the strangeness of it… but [working with] Russell and Helen Mirren, it was kind of a dream. And we shot in New York… it was pretty awesome.
It is easy to be skeptical when you hear the words remake or reimagining, but with Arthur, the casting of Brand is quite exciting. The man is funny, and he certainly has charisma. We’ll just have to wait until April 8, 2011 to see how this reboot holds up to the original.
Are you looking forward to a remake of Arthur?
