Martin Scorsese: “I would have practically done all my films in 3D”

Posted by Max Lalanne on April 26, 2012

 “So ya gonna walk toward that camera, it’s gonna look great in 3D…”

Martin Scorsese is very much in love with 3D technology following the Oscar-winning Hugo, and he made it show during a CinemaCon panel – with fellow director Ang Lee, who’s promoting his own 3D December release, The Life of Pi– yesterday.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, when asked by film critic Todd McCarthy which films he would’ve liked to shoot in 3D, his reply was frank: “I would have practically done all my films in 3D,” Scorsese replied. 

It’s somewhat easier to imagine some of the director’s most recent works, such as The Departed and Shutter Island, in 3D – but Taxi Driver‘s Robert de Niro cruising down the dirty New York streets, bathed in red neon light and headlights from fellow taxis, jumping out at the screen at you? Hey, if anyone could make it work, it’s probably Scorsese.
