We have two pieces of child actor casting to report tonight.  First, Deadline says that Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass) and Asa Butterfield (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas) have been cast in Martin Scorsese’s The Invention of Hugo Cabret.  Butterfield will play the title character who is an orphan/clock keeper/thief who lives in a train station.  Moretz will play opposite Butterfield as Isabelle, “an eccentric girl and the owner of a small toy booth in the train station.”  Moretz and Butterfield will star alongside Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley, whose casting we reported on earlier today.

Meanwhile, THR reports that 11-year-old Dakota Goyo (Resurrecting the Champ) will star with Hugh Jackman in Shawn Levy’s Real Steel.  The film is set in the future where robots have replaced humans as boxers.  Goyo’s character is described as “a street-smart, tough, charming kid with a hard, untrusting outer shell which hides a warm enthusiastic spirit beneath.”  Don’t worry.  The activation of your gag-reflex at this description is completely normal.

    I can't wait for this flick.

    I knew MORETZ was going places after I saw her in (500)Days of Summer.
