Martin Scorsese's 3-D Kids Film

Martin Scorsese is to film 'The Invention of Hugo Cabret' in 3-D.

The Oscar-winning director will shoot the movie, based on Brian Selznick's children's book of the same name, in London from June, according to Variety.

It is the first time Scorsese has made a children's movie and the first time he has shot in 3-D.

Scorsese's 'The Aviator' screenwriter John Logan penned the adaptation.

The movie tells the tale of 12-year-old Hugo - an orphaned boy in 1930s Paris who lives on a train station and hopes to solve the mystery of a broken robot.

'Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang' star Asa Butterfield will play the titular character, with Sacha Baron Cohen and Ben Kingsley also set to star.

New York-born Scorsese has a number of films coming up following on from thriller 'Shutter Island' - including a biopic on the life of Frank Sinatra due for release next year.

The 'Invention of Hugo Cabret' is set to hit cinema screens in December 2011.
