On the forums for TheOneRing.net, director Guillermo Del Toro briefly posted about the Lord of the Rings prequel, The Hobbit, being in 3D. It’s an envitible question since every big-budget, blockbuster movie now falls under 3D consideration. Here’s what GDT posted today:
I wouldn’t read much on it just yet, but now, after all this time, after AVATAR doing the Box Office it did, we have had enquires from above about The Hobbit being in 3-D.
No impositions or heavy leaning. Just enquires. Just fulfilling my promise to let you all know if discussions ever started.
Not much of a surprise that Warner Bros. wants to know if our return to Middle-Earth will be in 3D, but I like that Del Toro keeping fans involved in the discussion rather than sit back and enjoy the rampant speculation and false claims.
