Oscar-winner Martin Scorsese will use 3D for his film The Invention of Hugo Cabret, starring Sacha Baron Cohen ( Borat, Bruno), Ben Kinsgley ( Shutter Island), and 13-year-old Chloe Moretz (Hit Girl in Kick-Ass).

An adaptation of the children's book by Brian Selznick, the story follows a 12-year-old orphan living inside a train station in Paris during the 1930s, dedicated to solving the mystery of a broken robot, his father's ambition.

As a family mystery story, with a little sci-fi, it is a perfect choice of film for 3D technology. It will begin shooting in London next year and release on December 9, 2011.

Speaking at an event in Los Angeles recently, Scorsese voiced support of the technology, "Why couldn't a film like Precious be in 3-D? It should be. I'd love to do one. It just seems natural that we'd be going in that direction. It's going to be something to look forward to, but to be used interestingly."
