Martin Scorsese officially shooting Hugo Cabret in 3D

You've heard the rumors and now it's been confirmed: Martin Scorsese will shoot his next film, THE INVENTION OF HUGO CABRET, in 3D. The key word in that sentence is that he'll shoot the movies in 3D and not use the wonky conversion process that has caught hell in the past few months for movies like ALICE IN WONDERLAND and CLASH OF THE TITANS.

It's strange to think of Scorsese as the director of a 3D kids movie but lately Scorsese has been more of a hired gun than someone who's developing his own projects. And while I'm disappointed we're getting less of the vintage Scorsese, I do love the fact that he's out trying new things and consistently working.

The film, which will star Sacha Baron Cohen, Ben Kingsley, Chloe Moretz and Asa Butterfield, follows a young boy in Paris who lives in a train station and works to fix a robot ready to deliver a seemingly important message. John Logan, who worked with Scorsese on THE AVIATOR, wrote the script and Sony Pictures already has a December 9, 2011 release date planned.

Extra Tidbit: Call me crazy, but I'm really excited to see what a 3D Scorsese film looks like...

cant wait to see how he incorporates Gimme Shelter into a kiddies flick :) This is all the more interesting knowing its being shot in 3D by a modern master and student of film.

ehhh. Scorsese is one of my all time favorite directors, and 'Taxi Driver' is my favorite movie, so I'm a fan, but last several films, with the exception of 'The Departed', have disappointed me. They''re not bad, just not as epic as I've come to expect. But I agree with being excited that he is at least trying new things. You usually don't see directors doing this so late in their career. They just keep pumping out clones of the few good movies they did make. He could just make one movie every

This movie is already going to be a hit. Has Scorcese ever given us movie fans any reason to doubt him? No. This should be interesting.

Kind of wish everyone would stop hating on Alice In Wonderland. It was a great movie.

UMMM After hours was awesome! I think you meant to say Cape Fear, because that movie is just trash and easily Scorcese worst.

This is Scorcese we're talking here. I'm sure he won't turn this into some stupid "shit is flying into your face" kiddie flick. Dude is gonna work wonders here.
