An article about one of the companies transforming many upcoming releases into 3-D makes an alarming allusion to another potential 3-D release that's apparently in the talking stages.
Stereo Pictures Korea president Sung Young-seok told Daily Variety that his company is in talks for three additional pictures at Warner and is bidding on a number of 3D films for individual directors, including one for Michael Bay.
Bay's next project is "Transformers 3," and there have been discussions among Bay, Paramount and Industrial Light & Magic about going 3D with the pic. The big stumbling block is the extra time required to do production and visual effects in 3D, as the movie's release date is already set. Having the pic post-converted could alleviate that problem.
...says THIS article in Variety.
Interestingly, this newslet might signify something of a shift for Mister Bay - who has openly pondered whether his style of filmmaking would be 'too much' in 3-D (my paraphrase, not his exact words); he's even called 3-D a "gimmick" and a "fad".
Money, and AVATAR's Best Picture Oscar nomination, changes everything I guess.
Unlike many, I really don't hate Michael Bay movies (except for REVENGE OF THE FALLEN). This said, I don't think I wanna see his movies...given the way he makes 'em...in 3-D. I get nauseated just thinking about how dizzying and disorienting that could be.
