"Caligula" remake: first ever 3D porn movie

29 January 2010 [10:16] - TODAY.AZ
Tinto Brass, the man who made, and controversially loathed, 1979's Caligula thanks to the hardcore sex scenes that were edited in against his will, is planning what he's describing as the world's first-ever 3D pornographic production.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brass announced in Rome that he thinks the time is right, in this post-Avatar world, to make an erotic film that fully utilizes the 3D format.

And his idea? "To revisit an abandoned project about a Roman emperor that was ruined by Americans, and go from there." Looks like he wants to create a more definitive Caligula, and this time we'll all experience it in our laps.

He's kicking off work on the script right now with the aim to shoot in May or June.

And in related news, Hollywood Wiretap relates that boundary-pushing maverick director Gaspar Noe may also be plotting to shoot his next film - talked up at Cannes as "a joyful movie with explicit sex" in 3D. That one, however, is more of a rumour for now.

Dear Italy: welcome to the cinematic technological revolution, but did the leading light really have to be Tinto Brass?
