Martin Scorsese will shoot The Invention of Hugo Cabret in 3D. Sony has a release date of December 9, 2011 set for the adaptation Brian Selznick's best-selling children's book about an orphan named Hugo.
Scorsese has been circling several projects lately, including a Frank Sinatra biopic. The director is coming off of the huge success of Shutter Island, which has raked in more than $125 million domestically.
The 3D movement took quite a hit recently with the negative press that Clash of the Titans received, but the format continues to win the endorsement of visionary directors as well as plenty of support from major studios.
