The young leads cast in The Invention of Hugo Cabret.

Chloe Moretz (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/065/065612.html) (soon to be seen as Hit Girl in Kick-Ass (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/142/14276014.html)) and Asa Butterfield (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/065/065614.html) (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, The Wolfman) have been cast in The Invention of Hugo Cabret (http://uk.movies.ign.com/objects/887/887407.html) for director Martin Scorsese (http://uk.stars.ign.com/objects/914/914498.html) and GK Films.

Deadline (http://www.deadline.com/2010/03/scorsese-sets-pyjama-boy-and-hit-girl-for-the-invention-of-hugo-cabret/) reports that Butterfield will portray the title character, while Moretz will play Isabelle. Ben Kingsley and Sacha Baron Cohen will co-star.

Brian Selznik's acclaimed 2007 book incorporates fanciful illustrations to tell a charming tale inspired by the life of French filmmaker Georges Melies (to be played by Kingsley). The setting of a 1930s France train station provides a scenic backdrop for the story of an orphaned boy, Hugo Cabret, who discovers a hidden talent and a secret history when he sets out to repair a broken automaton, or clockwork figure, his father left behind.
