Russell Brand, Paula Patton sign family adventure 'Four Kids and It'

Washington : Russell Brand and Paula Patton are all set to star in the family adventure movie 'Four Kids and It' alongside the previously cast Matthew Goode and Oscar-Winner Michael Caine.
The movie follows four kids who are horrified to learn that their beach vacation is, in fact, a bonding trip with their potential future step-siblings. The kids then accidentally stumble upon a Psammead, a magical, grumpy and sandy creature, in this case, called It (voiced by Michael Caine) who can grant them one wish a day.
Brand will play the oddball villain Tristan, earlier was to be played by Bill Nighty, while the 'Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol' star, Patton, will play workaholic American mum Alice.
Produced by Dan Films' Julie Baines and Kindle Entertainment's Anne Brogan, the movie is an adaptation of Jacqueline Wilson's children's book, 'Four Children and it'.
"From the moment we first read Jacqueline Wilson's novel, a magical story combining a comic truthfulness about contemporary family life with the timeless wish fulfilment of E. Nesbit's classic tale, we knew it was a compelling mix for audiences both young and old. We are thrilled to have a stellar cast bring this treasured story to life," Variety quoted the statement of Baines and Brogan.
Beginning his career as a stand-up comedian, Brand has starred in the comedies 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' and 'Get Him to the Greek'
