Dame Helen Mirren has been cast alongside Russell Brand in Arthur.

The Oscar-winning actress will play Arthur's long-time nanny in the remake of the 1981 comedy, Variety reports.

Russell, who also appears with Dame Helen in the upcoming version of The Tempest, will take on the title role.

Bruno and Borat writer Peter Baynham wrote the script with Russell in mind to play the part originally played by Dudley Moore.

Modern Family's pilot director Jason Winer will direct.
