Martin Scorsese says he is considering the possibility of 3D for some upcoming projects, namely Benicio Del Toro and Gael García Bernal-starring Silence and his Sinatra biopic based on the famed performer.

In a recent interview with Variety reporter Christy Grosz, the filmmaker says he is considering the possibility of 3D, but is not interested in using 3D just for the sake of it.

Martin Scorsese agrees with Steven Spielberg that 3D should be used "selectively," and said:

"I agree with Steven Spielberg. I had always been interested in 3D, and I thought it made sense for Hugo. Generally, whenever there's a new technological development, there's a corresponding sense of excitement. The same thing happened with the introduction of three-strip Technicolor and CinemaScope and Dolby. And then everyone remembers it's only a means, not an end. Real 3D is beautiful, but it's just one choice, one tool among many, and you only want to use it if it's the right tool."
