Remakes are all the rage right now (there's not one but two hitting theaters just this weekend), and it sounds like Jennifer Garner is ready to jump on the bandwagon. She's in talks to star in the upcoming remake of Arthur, starring Russell Brand and Helen Mirren. Garner would play the rich heiress whom Arthur's mother (Mirren) wants her son to marry, though Arthur himself prefers a poor girl (Greta Gerwig). Nick Nolte is also lined up to play Arthur's religious father.
I personally love Jennifer Garner's comedic side (particularly in The Invention of Lying), and I can easily see her playing the prim and proper foil to Russell Brand's crazy. We already know that Brand is super excited about the film, but are you into the latest additions to the cast?
