See Russell Brand Cavorting Around in His Underwear on the Set of Arthur


Remaking Arthur — the 1981 Dudley Moore comedy about a boozy billionaire apprehensively heading into an arranged marriage — with Russell Brand in the title role is such a no-brainer we can't even really get mad at the general spirit of un-inventiveness on display. Also working in the movie's favor: it's already birthed photos of Brand running around New York in his underwear. All this — plus Greta Gerwig, Helen Mirren, and an angry Nick Nolte! — in our latest Vulture on Set slideshow. By the way, if we're remaking Dudley Moore movies now, can 1987 Kirk Cameron body-switching romp Like Father Like Son be next?
