After appearing in such mumblecore films as LOL and Hannah Takes the Stairs, Greta Gerwig is on her way to the mainstream. The young actress recently starred opposite Ben Stiller in Greenberg, and now Warner Bros. is reportedly in discussions with her about taking on the love interest role in the studio's remake of Arthur, the classic Dudley Moore comedy.

Russell Brand is playing the title role, Helen Mirren will fill the mentor position that Sir John Gielgud occupied in an Oscar-winning turn. As for Gerwig, she'll be taking over Liza Minnelli's role.

The Arthur remake could turn out to be a big hit if Brand's stock rises after the release of Get Him to the Greek this summer.
