We're now entering the era of movie studios and producers finding new revenue streams simply by dusting off catalog titles, spit-shining them, and putting them back into theaters. Disney's hugely successful "The Lion King" re-release is still playing in some markets even with the film now out of the vault on BluRay. "Ghostbusters" re-visited theaters last month, and next year your eyeballs will be dazzled (sort of) by new 3D versions of "Titanic" and "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace." So far the arthouse hasn't gotten into the game aside from your standard new prints of classic films, but it looks like all that is about to change.

With everyone and their Mom rushing to 3D including old school dudes like Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Coppola, for a moment there, it seemed like legendary director Bernardo Bertolucci was going to follow his colleagues over the proverbial cliff. Earlier this spring it was announced the filmmaker was going to be helming his new movie "Io e Te" in the format, marking his first time playing around in three dimensions. But with cameras set to roll soon, Bertolucci has not only made a 180 on that decision, he's got something to say about 3D as well.

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.
