Production has gotten underway on Martin Scorsese’s adaptation of Brian Selznick novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret. The project, simply titled Hugo Cabret, will also be Scorsese’s first 3D film.
From the release:
Hugo Cabret, Scorsese’s first film shot in 3D, tells the tale of an orphan boy (Asa Butterfield) living a secret life in the walls of a Paris train station. When Hugo encounters a broken machine, an eccentric girl (Chloë Moretz), and the cold, reserved man who runs the toy shop (Ben Kingsley), he is caught up in a magical, mysterious adventure that could put all of his secrets in jeopardy.
Hugo Cabret is scheduled to hit theaters on December 9, 2011.
