Comic Con: J.J. Abrams Says Super 8 Shoots In September, Won't Be 3D
Notoriously tight-lipped J.J. Abrams isn't likely to be slipping any details about his secret upcoming projects during today's Visionaries panel in Hall H, but he was convinced to talk a little bit about Super 8, the Spielberg-inspired project he's set to make next. He said it was far too early to talk details, and he doesn't have a cast in place yet, but that filming will start in September. Oh, and it won't be in 3D.
It was really more of a joke to ask if Super 8 would be in 3D-- after all, it's inspired by old-school films and home movies-- but the news still got a cheer from the audience. Abrams went on to explain a little of his aversion to 3D as a moviegoer: "Everything gets dim. It all gets a little gray and muted. You get into it, my brain adjusts to it after a while, but for the first few minutes, it seems less than the experience." Sounds like somebody saw Clash of the Titans and got burned like the rest of it.
The Visionaries panel is ongoing and fascinating, so hopefully there will be more to bring you shortly.
