Sacha Baron Cohen and Kinsgley also confirmed for GK Films pic

Jude Law, Ray Winstone and Christopher Lee have joined and Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley have been confirmed to join the cast of Martin Scorsese’s “The Invention of Hugo Cabret” for Graham King’s GK Films.

Asa Butterfield is starring as the title character and Chloe Moretz (“Kick Ass”) had been previously announced as cast members on the pic, which began shooting Tuesday in London. Sony’s set to release “Cabret” on Dec. 9, 2011.

Also tapped for the “Cabert” cast are Helen McCrory, Richard Griffiths and Frances de la Tour.

“Cabret” represents Scorsese’s first forary into 3D and reunites Scorsese with his “Departed” and “Aviator” producer Graham King.

Story centers on a 12-year-old orphan named Hugo, who lives in a train station and must finish what his late father started by solving the mystery of a broken robot. Besides King, pic is also being produced by Scorsese, GK Films partner Tim Headington and Johnny Depp.

John Logan, who wrote “The Aviator,” adapted the screenplay from Brian Selznick’s best-selling children’s book “The Invention of Hugo Cabret.”

Executive producers are Emma Tillinger Koskoff, Charles Newirth and Christi Dembrowski. Scorsese’s also using several longtime collaborators, including director of photography Robert Richardson, production designer Dante Ferretti, costume designer Sandy Powell and editor Thelma Schoonmaker — all who worked with him on “Shutter Island.”

GK Films recently wrapped production on “The Tourist,” directed by Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck and starring Angelina Jolie and Johnny Depp. Its crime drama “The Town,” written and directed by Ben Affleck, is set to be released by Warner Bros. in September.

GK Films acquired the screen rights to “Cabret” shortly after the book was published by Scholastic Press in 2007.
