Scorsese to shoot ‘Hugo Cabret’ in 3D

Oscar-winning director's next film to open Dec. 9, 2011

Martin Scorsese is taking the plunge into 3D.

The helmer will employ the technology for his next project, “The Invention of Hugo Cabret.”

Sony, which is distributing the GK Films-produced pic, has dated the film for Dec. 9, 2011.

Based on Brian Selznick’s best-selling children’s book, story is set in 1930s Paris and centers on a 12-year-old orphan named Hugo, who lives in a train station and must finish what his late father started by solving the mystery of a broken robot.

Project, which will begin lensing in London in June, marks Scorsese’s first foray into kid lit as well as his debut 3D film.

John Logan, who wrote Scorsese’s “The Aviator,” adapted the screenplay.
