The Invention of Hugo Cabret gets even more visual

According to this, Brian Selznick's graphic novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret is going to be made into a movie:

"The adaptation is being ushered into production by GK Films, whose last project was The Departed. They've recruited in-demand screenwriter John Logan (Gladiator, The Aviator, Sweeney Todd) to write the screenplay. And the film will be directed by Chris Wedge (Ice Age, Robots), trying to make an Andrew Adamson-like break into live-action, having mastered CGI animation. The plan is to start filming this fall, presumably with an eye toward getting the movie out by Christmas of next year." [Source]
I just realized I haven't seen a single one of the films mentioned in the above excerpt, so none of those references mean anything to me, but the author of the original post called it "'Hugo Cabret' Getting A-List Adaptation", so I'm assuming they're all big names, and therefore the final product is sure to be magnificent.

...okay, it might not be magnificent, but at least it's guaranteed to have a really, really big budget.
