Does that mean we can expect a 3D treatment for Blade Runner? God knows there aren’t enough different versions in existence already. The director announced at Comic-Con that he’ll “never work without 3D again, even for small dialogue scenes”.
It seems his latest movie, Prometheus (pictured), is what sparked his love affair with 3D, saying “I love the whole process. 3D opens up the universe of even a small dialogue scene so I’ve been very impressed with that.”
If 3D for some reason does turn out to be a flash in the pan, Scott may end up regretting uttering those famous words – he’ll lose a fan in Simon Pegg anyway, who embarked on another anti-3D rant on Twitter last Saturday. Agreeing with Roger Ebert’s verdict on the latest (and last) Harry Potter film, Pegg tweeted “really enjoyed HP7 and credit where it’s due the 3D did an extraordinary job of making everything really dark, blurry and difficult to see,” following it up with “as I said, the 3D on HP7.2 should be avoided. Think 3D works with animation because it gives it a dimension we haven’t seen in that context.” Pegg is, of course, appearing in several animated 3D movies, including the upcoming Tin Tin. [3DRadar]
