cabret.jpgI first heard mention of Martin Scorsese buying the rights to “The Invention of Hugo Cabret” a couple of days after the Caldecott announcement. My reaction was surprise – I figured if anyone, maybe Jon Favreau would give it a shot, but Marty? I tried to just sort of ignore the news for a bit, wait to see if it would be confirmed. Turns out it’s true. Brian Selznick himself ratifies the rumor over at School Library Journal. I have to say I’m pleased. Who would you rather have translate “Cabret” to the silver screen than one of the greatest living filmmakers? Click the logo below to see for yourself.
