Production has begun in London on Academy Award-winner Martin Scorsese's adventure film Hugo Cabret. The live-action film, to be photographed in 3D, stars Academy Award winner Ben Kingsley (Shutter Island), Sacha Baron Cohen (Bruno), Asa Butterfield (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas), and Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass).

Based on Brian Selznick's captivating and imaginative New York Times bestseller The Invention of Hugo Cabret, the screenplay is by John Logan and the film is produced by Scorsese, Graham King, Tim Headington, and Johnny Depp. Executive producers are Emma Tillinger, Charles Newirth and Christi Dembrowski.

Hugo Cabret, Scorsese's first film shot in 3D, tells the tale of an orphan boy living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. When Hugo encounters a broken machine, an eccentric girl, and the cold, reserved man who runs the toy shop, he is caught up in a magical, mysterious adventure that could put all of his secrets in jeopardy.

Also appearing in the all-star cast are Academy Award nominee Jude Law (Sherlock Holmes), Ray Winstone (London Boulevard), Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings), Helen McCrory (The Special Relationship), Frances de la Tour (Alice in Wonderland), and Richard Griffiths (The History Boys).

Hugo Cabret re-teams Scorsese, King, and Logan, all of whom worked together on The Aviator. It also reunites Scorsese with several of his longtime collaborators, including director of photography Robert Richardson (Shutter Island, Inglourious Basterds), production designer Dante Ferretti (Shutter Island, Sweeney Todd), costume designer Sandy Powell (Shutter Island, The Young Victoria), and editor Thelma Schoonmaker (Shutter Island, The Departed), all multiple-time Oscar winners, as well as casting director Ellen Lewis (The Departed, The Aviator).

Hugo Cabret will be filmed at London's Shepperton Studios as well as on locations in London and Paris. It is scheduled for a December 2011 release in North America by Sony Pictures.

Hugo was released November 23rd, 2011 and stars Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa Butterfield, Chloe Moretz, Ray Winstone, Emily Mortimer, Christopher Lee, Helen McCrory. The film is directed by Martin Scorsese.
