Caligula Director Plans World’s First 3D Porn

Veteran Italian erotic film director Tinto Brass is planning what he calls the world’s first-ever 3D pornographic production says The Hollywood Reporter.

Brass is most famous for 1979’s “Caligula”, the controversial Gore Vidal-penned all-star film version of the life of the insane Roman emperor.

The project achieved a level of infamy when producer and magazine publisher Bob Guccione took the project out of Brass’ hands and inserted scenes of hardcore pornography into the action without Brass’ consent.

Brass says the time is right for 3D technologies to be used to create an erotic film which will also be the first 3D film of any type made in Italy. Presently a few select adult websites offer 3D porn, but using the old fashioned red/blue glyph technology rather than the modern 3D stereoscopic version.

Story wise he says with the film he plans to “revisit an abandoned project about a Roman emperor that was ruined by Americans, and go from there.”

Casting and script work is already underway with filming to kick off in May or June.
