Sir Ben Kingsley is preparing to reunite with Martin Scorsese.
Having recently worked with the filmmaker on Shutter Island, the British actor is getting ready to start work on another movie with the legendary director.
Sir Ben revealed: "I'm starting Martin Scorsese's next film in about two weeks. I'm really looking forward to it. It's called The Invention Of Hugo Cabret - it's a beautiful film."
He gushed: "It's a dream and he [Scorsese] is Mr Cinema. You know how Marty is devoted to cinema and its evolution and we go right back to those first flickering images.
"I think he must have about 40,000 films in his head or at least on his computer. He knows the scene without being like a teacher. He just invites you to share something. It really is contagious - it's marvellous."
"It's about memory, it's about childhood, it's about invention. A very, very beautiful film," Sir Ben said of the movie, which also stars Sacha Baron Cohen.
