Joel Silver Talks Sense On 3D Conversions
Thank you, Joel Silver. The Matrix producer has come out and said that he’s not a fan of converting movies into 3D, and “hopes” that such a fate doesn’t await the Keanu Reeves Invisibles homage. Talking to MTV, he said,
I think the conversion to 3-D is not as effective as the movies that are created and invented and devised in 3-D… I mean look– you’re charging a lot more money for tickets and I think we should go out there with the real deal. Certain films, you can apply 3-D to them really well. And certain [other] films, maybe not. I hope they don’t try to do that with ‘The Matrix.’ I think it’s a 2-D movie and it should stay like that.
I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Hollywood may need more people like Joel Silver. What a sobering thought.
