Variety reports that the Oscar-winning director of 'The Departed' will be shooting his next project, 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret,' in 3D. The film is Scorsese's first venture into both children's literature and the increasingly popular 3D format.

'The Invention of Hugo Cabret' is based on Brian Selznick's best-selling novel, published by Scholastic Press in January 2007. The story is set in 1930s Paris and centers on a 12-year-old orphan who lives in a train station and must solve the mystery of a broken robot left by his late father. John Logan ('The Aviator') adapted the screenplay.

'Hugo Cabret' will begin filming in London in June and currently has a release date of Dec. 9, 2011.

Martin Scorsese's latest film, 'Shutter Island,' was a critical and commercial success, earning over $246 million in worldwide box office. No word yet on whether Scorsese's frequent collaborator Leonardo DiCaprio will be involved with 'Hugo Cabret.'

As previously reported, Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley were said to be eyeing roles in the film.
