‘The Green Hornet’ has been moved from a release date of December 22 to a January 14, 2011 release, Sony has announced. In addition, it was confirmed that the film will be released in 3D. Jeff Blake, marketing and distribution head for Sony, was quoted as saying, “We’ve had a lot of success with the Martin Luther King frame, including Paul Blart. We couldn’t be more excited about Green Hornet. In fact, we’re doubling down by making it 3D.”
A Sony rep said that the movie was being pushed back to avoid the gaggle of 3D movies slated for release at the end of this year. That list includes Tron: Legacy, Smurfs, Yogi Bear, and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I, with rumours that Gullivers Travels and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader may join the parade.
‘The Green Hornet’ is reportedly being augmented in post-production to make it 3D, as opposed to the conversion method used by Clash of the Titans.
