Like it or not, 3D is here to stay and is no longer just the plaything of James Cameron or studios looking to beef up their bottom line on tentpole fare. Bonafide auteurs are now taking a hard look at the format too. Martin Scorsese is diving into stereoscopic shooting for his upcoming "Hugo Cabret"; Francis Ford Coppola's "Twixt Now And Sunrise" will have a 3D sequence; Takashi Miike goes to Cannes this year with his 3D "Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai"; Steven Soderbergh would have shot "Contagion" in 3D if the cameras were ready in time; Baz Luhrmann is strongly considering the format for "The Great Gatsby" and now, one of cinemas greatest legends will be embarking on his first three dimensional movie.

Like it or not, 3D is here to stay and is no longer just the plaything of James Cameron or studios looking to beef up their bottom line on tentpole fare. Bonafide auteurs are now taking a hard look at the format too. Martin Scorsese is diving into stereoscopic shooting for his upcoming "Hugo Cabret"; Francis Ford Coppola's "Twixt Now And Sunrise" will have a 3D sequence; Takashi Miike goes to Cannes this year with his 3D "Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai"; Steven Soderbergh would have shot "Contagion" in 3D if the cameras were ready in time; Baz Luhrmann is strongly considering the format for "The Great Gatsby" and now, one of cinemas greatest legends will be embarking on his first three dimensional movie.

Variety reports that Bernardo Bertolucci ("Last Tango In Paris," "The Dreamers") will mount his next effort "Io e Te" ("Me And You") later this year in the glorious wonder that is 3D. The film, which he has been attached to for awhile now, is based on the book by Niccolo Ammaniti and centers on "a 14-year-old boy named Lorenzo who, having told his parents that he went on a ski trip, hides out in his basement where he unexpectedly comes into close contact with his much older half-sister, Olivia, who has a heroin-addiction problem." We can't wait to see the consequences of drug addiction right up in our face. Oof.

Anyway, Bertolucci is forging ahead, penning the script with the author and Umberto Contarello ("This Must Be The Place") with plans to shoot in Rome in September. Despite our hesitation on whether or not the format is really required for this kind of story, the first film from Bertolucci in eight years is still something of an event and we'll be waiting to see what he pulls together.
