Bertolucci’s 3D drama takes shape

'Me and You' marks helmer's first stereoscopic endeavor

Bernardo Bertolucci will shoot his previously announced “Io e te” (Me and You) in 3D.

Filming will start in September on the coming-of-age drama about an adolescent boy who hides out in his Rome basement.

Rome-based producer Mario Gianani, who shepherded Marco Bellocchio’s “Vincere,” will produce “Me and You” with Bertolucci’s Fiction Cinematografica.

While other production details, including foreign sales, are under wraps, Medusa has confirmed it will release the pic in Italy. Casting is still being decided.

Pic marks Bertolucci’s return to the director’s chair eight years after “The Dreamers.” It will be his first Italian-language feature after 30 years and his first foray into 3D.

“Me and You” is based on a short novel by Italian author Niccolo Ammaniti. Bertolucci is working on the screenplay with Ammaniti and Umberto Contarello, who most recently co-penned Paolo Sorrentino’s Sean Penn starrer “This Must Be the Place.”Bertolucci told Daily Variety that what he loves about 3D is that “it’s based on the fact that you look with two eyes; so two cameras imitate that. It’s like having a way of seeing things along with the audience.”
