Hollywood now is addicted to 3D. Whether a movie needs it or not, it will be in 3D. While movies like Avatar and Tron Legacy work good in the format, there’s no reason why Baz Luhrmann should be filming his adaptation of The Great Gatsby in 3D.
More bad news come from Hugh Jackman. Jackman recently spoke with Collider and said that Tom Hooper’s big screen version of Les Miserables could possibly be shot in 3D.
“It’s in discussion,” said Jackman. “Honestly, that’s probably gonna be part of what the tests are about, to see what that does.” He also said that Hooper is going to consider how the technology works with character and emotion. “It is not like there are massive special effects in Les Mis, you know?” he added.
Production is scheduled to begin in March. And hopefully 3D will not be considered.
