Our favourite bushy eyed Oscar- winning director, Martin Scorsese is about to embrace the latest step in techno cinema. With four releases in four months making big money at the box office, 3D has taken over tinsel town.

With the recession hitting its peak studios are hungry for every opportunity to keep cinema goers going and the money coming in. With this in mind, Scorsese’s latest project, The Invention of Hugo Cabaret will be shot in 3D glory ready for release next Christmas.

As an old school Auteur, Marty has conquered cinema without big budget action thrillers like Taxi Driver, Goodfellas and Mean Streets and is now paving the way for old Hollywood, proving that 3D isn’t just for sci-fi or big budget films.

Based on the best-selling children’s book by Brian Selznick, The Invention of Hugo Cabaret tells the story of a 12-year-old boy who lives in a Paris train station in the 1930s. With Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley being rumored to star Scorsese’s next project could pave new ground for 3D story telling.

After Avatar surpassed expectations at the box office earlier in the year many films are queuing up for 3D treatment, both future features and some classics including James Cameron’s first box office epic, Titanic.

Are there any classics that you might like to see back on the big screen in 3D? Marty McFly and the Doc going Back to the Future in 3D perhaps? Or maybe Jaws leaving the deep blue and coming for you?
