Helen Mirren, Andy Serkis, Rafi Gavron, and Sienna Guillory have been added to the cast of the family fantasy, Inkheart.

They join star Brendan Fraser, Paul Bettany and Jim Broadbent in the tale of a father who brings characters from books to life by reading stories aloud to his daughter. According to Variety, Mirren will portray the book collector Elinor Loredan while Serkis will play the villain Capricorn.

It's the first in Cornelia Funke's trilogy of books; Iain Softley is directing Inkheart from a screenplay by David Lindsay-Abaire. Production begins next month in Italy and then shifts to London.
