The iconic director's next film, Hugo Cabret, will be his first shot using stereoscopic 3D technology.
In an interview with critic Mark Kermode, a notorious sceptic of 3D films, Scorsese said: "I've always liked 3D. I mean, we're sitting here in 3D. We are in 3D. We see in 3D. So why not?
"Every shot is rethinking cinema, rethinking narrative - how to tell a story with a picture. Now, I'm not saying we have to keep throwing javelins at the camera, I'm not saying we use it as a gimmick, but it's liberating."
He added: "It's literally a Rubik's Cube every time you go out to design a shot, and work out a camera move, or a crane move.
"But it has a beauty to it also. People look like... like moving statues. They move like sculpture, as if sculpture is moving in a way. Like dancers..."
Stars confirmed for Hugo Cabret include Jude Law, Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Asa Butterfield, Chloe Moretz and Helen McCrory.
