With the sighting of the Batman Forever Batmobile last week on the set of Arthur, we knew that the comedy — helmed by Jason Winer (Modern Family) — would have to show off lead actor Russell Brand in the Batman costume. What we didn’t know was that Luiz Guzman is not only in the film, but also filling out (over flowing?) a Robin costume of his own to hilarious effect. Filming on the remake of the 1981 Steve Gordon comedy began in July, and we can expect a few more crazy antics to be spotted in the near future. Hit the jump to check out the images of Brand and Guzman as the masked crusaders.
For those feeling a little lost in all of this Batman reminiscence, Arthur follows the story of a drunken wealthy playboy (Brand) who goes against the grain and might lose his inheritance because of the woman he falls for (Greta Gerwig) instead of the one his family expects (rumored to be Jennifer Garner). Nick Nolte is also rumored to play Garner’s deeply religious father. Meanwhile, Helen Mirren will be overtaking the role originally played by John Gielgud as Arthur’s valet and friend Hobson, while Brand and Gerwig are replacing Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli, respectively. Winer will be directing based on a screenplay by Peter Baynham (Borat), and the film is expected to hit in 2011.
