Seth Rogen spoke recently about the delay of his film ‘The Green Hornet’ and the “augmentation” of the film to 3D.
“[Co-writer] Evan Goldberg, [director] Michel Gondry and myself could not be more excited about going 3D,” he says. “The truth is that this is something that we have wanted since the very first conversations we all had about the film. A lot of the visually driven sequences Michel came up [with] were first conceived for a 3D movie. After watching the first third of the film and working with Sony Imageworks, the studio decided now would be a perfect time to commit to 3D.”
Rogen also talks about the difference between augmenting a film to 3D and converting one, which apparently is to do with the effects.
“None of the effects shots have been started, none of the blue screen shots have been composited, and this lets us do all of it in 3D,” he explains.
