Scorsese’s Next Invention

Following in the triumphant recent footsteps of Wes Anderson and Spike Jonze, Martin Scorsese is, according to reports in Variety and the Guardian , likely turning to children’s literature for his next movie. And we’re big fans of the source material: author-illustrator Brian Selznick’s fanciful Caldecott Medal–winning The Invention of Hugo Cabret, a dazzlingly drawn, 550-page (!) storybook about a young orphan’s relationship with the mysterious Georges Meliès in turn-of-the-century Paris. Its combination of fantasy and film history should certainly make for a nice fit with movie-mad Scorsese. Incidentally, Selznick wrote a lovely appreciation for Criterion of another magical child’s-eye view of Paris: The Red Balloon.
