THE GREEN HORNET going 3D, release date pushed back
Nothing says, “wait, we believe in this movie!” like a post-production 3D job. Late on the heels of last week’s news that Sony is none-too-pleased with what they’ve seen from Michel Gondry’s THE GREEN HORNET, the studio has announced that they’re turning the Seth Rogen-starrer into a 3D property.
To accommodate this added post-production burden, the film’s release date has been pushed back yet again, from a prime holiday spot on December 22 to January 14. While the January wasteland date might seem like a real punch in the face, this will allow the film to open over the long Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend. The studio has promised that the HORNET changes will include “enhancements in top quality” and that it will “produce all of its visual effects shots in original 3D.” In the announcement, Sony domestic distribution president Rory Bruer vowed that Gondry had always “planned…for the possibility of HORNET being released in 3D, though his work to date didn't include any 3D cameras.” Uh huh.
As a result of HORNET’s move to January, Sony is pushing back another one of its 3D films – PRIEST will be moving from the January 14 date to March 4. Unlike THE GREEN HORNET, PRIEST has been billed as a 3D project from its start.
Does a 3D GREEN HORNET make you more or less excited for the project?
