Martin Scorsese says even Precious should be in 3D

If Martin Scorsese wasn't a genius filmmaker, this is about the time we'd usher him to an easy chair in the corner of the room saying, "Shhh grandpa, why don't you just sit, relax and watch 'Jeopardy'..." while running to the other room to get Shady Oaks rest home on the line. Turns out Scorsese says that even movies like PRECIOUS should be in 3D. Can I get an instant replay? Turns out Scorsese says that even movies like PRECIOUS should be in 3D.

OK Marty, you got yourself into this mess, dig yourself out. "We see in depth, for the most part. We go to the theater — it's in depth. Why couldn't a film like PRECIOUS be in 3-D? It should be." I see his point, to a certain degree, but I think as a society we're waaaay off from this line of thinking. 3D is still something audiences perceive as a gimmick reserved for specific kinds of movies. It's also something movie studios see as a gimmick that will bring them lots of extra money. I think the biggest part is that shooting in 3D is much more difficult than traditional filmmaking and, currently, near impossible for indie filmmakers.

So is Scorsese ready to put his money where his mouth is? To his credit he says he'd "love to do one" adding that, "It just seems natural that we'd be going in that direction...It's going to be something to look forward to."

Extra Tidbit: Rumors are that Scorsese is filming HUGO CABRET in 3D, which may explain his tubthumping.
