Helen Mirren to Play Nanny to Russell Brand

Unkempt up-and-comer Russell Brand has been attached to a remake of the Dudley Moore comedy Arthur for quite a while, and now he's found a scene partner. Helen Mirren will be stepping into the role played by John Gielgud in the 1981 original, only now the character has been reconceived as Arthur's longtime nanny. Producers originally went after Meryl Streep for the part, but hey, there's still time for her to play the love interest. [THR]
