Producer Richard Rubinstein spoke with FANGORIA and revealed that there are plans to convert George A. Romero’s original DAWN OF THE DEAD into 3D!? In-Three, Inc. of Agoura Hill, CA is currently handling the “dimensionalization” process.
Rubinstein told FANGO, “When (producer on DAWN remake) Mike Messina and I began to investigate using In-Three’s technique, I was very skeptical. I couldn’t see how it could be used without re-editing George’s film, which I was not going to do. I was also concerned that converting a 29-year-old movie would not be competitive qualitatively with the new 3-D live-action features being shot today. I was wrong in both cases. George’s DAWN OF THE DEAD can be reformatted into 3-D without any editing, and the image looks spectacular! As it stands now, it will take about a year to complete the conversion of the whole film.”
The article also points out that In-Three’s work "has been hailed by George Lucas, James Cameron and Peter Jackson, among others." The article also mentions Rubenstein’s plans to produce a sequel to 2004’s DAWN OF THE DEAD remake (directed by Zack Snyder and written by James Gunn), as well as a new version of Frank Herbert’s DUNE with Peter Berg at the helm.
