First Look at Russell Brand as ‘Arthur’!

Splash News has posted the first image of Russell Brand as Arthur. The comic actor will be stepping into the shoes of the legendary character that was played by the late Dudley Moore.

Russell Brand as Arthur

British comedian Russell Brand is developing a remake of Arthur, the 1981 comedy that starred Dudley Moore. The original movie followed a boozy playboy rascal who is set to inherit a fortune if he marries an heiress his family thinks will make something out of him. However, he falls in love with a working-class woman and turns to his valet for help when his family makes him choose between money and love.

Arthur was released April 8th, 2011.

                  It's a shame that it takes such a fantastic film to be re-made for people to see how untalented Russell Brand really is. I suppose this was inevitably going to get re-made like everything else but why did it have to be him? What a terrible way to destroy a timeless classic.

                              I had to make an account for this site just to comment on this sh*t. I can't believe they're remaking Arthur and casting the most unfunny guy ever as the lead role. I can't believe Brand still has a job after epically bombing at the VMAs

                                      @ Stiles I agree, Brand has absolutely NO chram; I just don't see the appeal of this obnoxious un-funny dude who HWood is now pushing on everyone. It's like Jack Black went on a diet and we got THIS.

                                        f*ck me he looks like a recovering herion addict without a beard, which funnily enough...he is.

                                        I watched the orignal Arthur last night. John Gielgood owns that film. I don't think the Butler role can be improved. Brand has 1/100th the chram of Dudley too.

                                          He's no Dudley Moor thats for sure! But this could be interesting... Look at it as a re-imagining, nothing else... Could be funny for what it is, but please DON'T compare it to the original two films, you'll just depress yourself
