Filmmaker extraordinaire Martin Scorsese has found the best thing to happen to him since he realized he could play old records over movie scenes and make them 10 times better: 3D. His latest movie, Hugo, was released in 3D, but that was just the opening salvo of what might become a Scorsese-blast in America’s face. The children‘s fantasy/adventure of Hugo seems like an easy fit with 3D, but now Scorsese says he’s considering doing his next project, a serious drama about ” two 17th century Jesuit priests who face violence and persecution when they travel to Japan” in 3D. Whaaa?

As if that weren’t enough, Scorsese put down his giant paddle-ball set and said he was also considering making his Frank Sinatra biopic in 3D. So clearly, Scorsese sees 3D as much more than a price-inflating gimmick. We’ll have to wait and see if people will actually pay extra money to be “fully immersed” in a couple of silent monks and/or The Rat Pack. (The Playlist)

It’s been a long time since we last checked in with director Martin Scorsese. A long, long time. Actually, it was an hour ago. Turns out it’s been a very productive hour for Team Casino.

As we thought, the rumors about Scorsese directing Wolf Of Wall Street this summer were as reliable as Bernie Madoff. The Leonardo DiCaprio movie will not be the Taxi Driver director’s next project. “Alright then, wiseguy. What is?”

We have confirmation his next project will be Silence. Though it’s debatable whether or not it’s golden, Silence is a drama based on Shusaku Endo’s book about two Jesuit priests in the 1600′s on a tumultuous journey, who travel to Japan to find their mentor and spread Christianity. It sounds a lot like a Harold and Kumar style road movie, only not like that at all. Silence has long been a passion project for Scorsese, though hopefully not in a creepy Passion of the Christ kind of way.

Benicio Del Toro and Daniel Day-Lewis will star, and the story was adapted by Jay Cocks (Gangs of New York). There’s no official shooting dates yet, because Scorsese still has to finish his crazy-sounding 3D movie Hugo Cabret. (The Playlist)
