Darren Aronofksy’s ballet thriller Black Swan may be forgotten by next March, St. Patrick’s Day to be precise, for that is the day that Michael Flatley’s Lord of the Dance feature-length film will be unleashed upon us. I mean, released at a theater near you. And to bring you the full, unadulterated as-if-you-were-there experience of the world-famous Irish jig show, it will be in 3D.
I can barely contain my, um… I mean, curb my enthusiasm.
Multicamera specialist Marcus Vilner is directing and working in direct collaboration with Flatley, who promises an unforgettable experience and a different one from his live shows as the movie will have a new set, design, lighting, costumes, you name it. This will be the Avatar of dance. It will also capture the show’s “ability to cross boundaries of age, gender and cultural diversity,” says the press release posted on his website. And the current 3D craze was too good of an opportunity to pass up. Imagine all those jiggling feet kicking away…hit the jump for more.
