Comic Con: Zack Snyder Has Seen 300 In 3D
We already brought you what Zack Snyder had to say from Comic Con about the potential sequel to his smash hit 300. But there might be another kind of future for King Leonidas and his doomed men. Though he wouldn't tell us whether a release was imminent, Snyder told us during a roundtable interview on Saturday that he has seen a 3D version of 300.
"They sent me a test of 300 that they had converted to 3D. It was pretty awesome, I have to say. This was like 4-5 months ago. They may try conversion."
Now, I don't know how the 3D transfer process works, exactly, but it's probably pretty expensive process just to tinker with and show to a movie's director, then abandon entirely. Plus, 300, with its ripped-from-the-comic-book-panels style, would probably look fantastic in 3D. For those who think that 3D makes things look cartoony, well, that's the entire point here.
Snyder also said that his next project, Guardians of Ga'Hoole, will be filmed in 3D, though Sucker Punch, which is also on the docket, will not. "It's so crazy, I don't know how we would shoot it in 3D. I couldn't get the 3D cameras where I need them to be. We are on the edge right now with the technology, just to get everything shot." But that movie aside, it sounds like Snyder is willing to jump on board with the burgeoning 3D trend. Now we just have to see if 300-- and maybe even Watchmen, though he didn't mention any specific plans-- will be part of that trend.
