Scorsese to shoot Hugo Cabret in 3D
Posted by LiveFor on April 14, 2010
Martin Scorsese’s next film is The Invention of Hugo Cabret based on the book by Brian Selznick. It also looks as if he is going to give this new fangled 3D thingy a go according to Variety.
Judging by the synopsis below it could well work as a 3D film and the fact Scorsese wants to shoot it that way means there will be no post conversion to mess things up.
ORPHAN, CLOCK KEEPER, AND THIEF, twelve-year-old Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. But when his world suddenly interlocks with an eccentric girl and the owner of a small toy booth in the train station, Hugo’s undercover life, and his most precious secret, are put in jeopardy. A cryptic drawing, a treasured notebook, a stolen key, a mechanical man, and a hidden message all come together…in The Invention of Hugo Cabret.
This 526-page book is told in both words and pictures. The Invention of Hugo Cabret is not exactly a novel, and it’s not quite a picture book, and it’s not really a graphic novel, or a flip book, or a movie, but a combination of all these things. Each picture (there are nearly three hundred pages of pictures!) takes up an entire double page spread, and the story moves forward because you turn the pages to see the next moment unfold in front of you.
The film stars Asa Butterfield (The Boy in the Striped Pajamas), Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass), Ben Kingsley, and Sacha Baron Cohen (Borat). It is due for release on 9th December 2011.
