Nick Nolte, who will star opposite Dustin Hoffman in the new HBO series "Luck", and will be seen next in an action drama "Warrior", and Jennifer Garner, who recently starred in "Valentine's Day" and will also be starring in and producing comedy feature "Butter", are in negotiations with Warner Bros. to join Russell Brand, Helen Mirren and Greta Gerwig in the remake of 1981 romantic comedy "Arthur".

Garner will star as a wealthy heiress who is about to marry Arthur (Brand) in an arranged marriage. Nolte will play the father of Linda Marolla (Gervig), who has romantic relationship with Arthur.

Story is about a boozing playboy who falls in love with a working class woman while he was supposed to marry a girl his family expected in order to inherit a vast family fortune.

Larry Brezner, Chris Bender and Kevin McCormick will produce, while Brand, Scott Kroopf, J.C. Spink and Nick Linnen will executive produce.
