PostSubject: Martin Scorsese's Hugo   Wed Jun 30, 2010 12:26 pm

Martin Scorsese has made many great films over the years, nearly every film he's made is great. Mean Streets, Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The King of Comedy, The Last Temptation of Christ, Goodfellas... the list just goes on and on. He finally won an Oscar for The Departed a few years back, alot say it was a case of "right director, wrong film" but it was a powerful gangster film. This year, his long awaited thriller/horror Shutter Island came out, it was a mind bending film with twists galore. However, Marty has wasted no time in getting his next film up and running, and it could be seen as a departure of sorts. As he's doing a CHILDREN'S film next!! Shocked Yep, he's adapting Brian Selznick's 2007 book The Invention of Hugo Cabret. And he's going 3-D for it. However, don't let that put you off, he's also assembled a great cast for it.

Set in 1930's Paris, it has orphaned Hugo (Asa Butterfield off The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas), who lives in the roof of the Gare Montparnasse train station. He tends to the clock in the station while also trying to repair an invention passed onto him by his father. At the station, he befriends Isabelle (Chloe 'Hit-Girl' Moretz) as well as former French filmmaker 'Papa' Georges Méliès (Ben Kingsley), who works in a toy booth at the station.

It sounds very interesting, but it will be exciting to see what Scorsese can do with this film. He's already assembled the rest of his cast, Sacha Baron Cohen plays the Station Inspector, while Scorsese has also got Jude Law, Richard Griffiths, Helen McCrory, Ray Winstone, Frances de la Tour and Christopher Lee to appear in the film!! Very Happy (Marty worked with Law on The Aviator, and Our Ray on The Departed). Filming has started in London and will move on to Paris. It's out for Christmas 2011. Here's the book and it's illustrations that's inspired the production!!









Anyone want to see this?? Anything by Martin Scorsese is worth a look, even his lesser known films are as good as the more popular ones. He's making it over here, and it could be his most daring and exciting film to date. He's got the best cast you could ask for in this one. He's going to be a busy man over the next few years, he's doing a Sinatra biopic, he's got a Theodore Roosevelt biopic with Leonardo DiCaprio up for the lead and a Japanese drama called Silence to be made. He's also going 3-D for this one, now some of you may groan at that, but it can be put to good use, not just for thrills, look at the depth it gave Up (2009). Scorsese is excited about 3-D, maybe he can bring the best out of 1930's Paris with it!! Very Happy

A bit of an odd choice but one I look forward to seeing!

It's been chosen as this year's Royal Performance Film!!

I wonder if the Queen or the Royal family have seen Taxi Driver, Goodfellas or Casino. Razz

Can you imagine them doing "Are you talking to me" impressions?
