House star Hugh Laurie has signed on for the leading role of the Andrew Adamson directed "Mr. Pip" movie which is based on the Lloyd Jones novel.
Mr. Pip tells the story of the last white man left on the war-torn island of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea, who reopens a school and reads his favorite novel, Great Expectations, to the students, inspiring a gifted 14-year-old named Matilda. The filmmakers plan to begin filming in New Zealand and on location on Bougainville in May.
