"Harry Potter" producers may have ditched plans to release "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1" in 3-D last November, but they haven't abandoned bringing three dimensions to the film. The flick is currently being converted to 3-D for a Blu-ray release.
What's more, we just might see the rest of the franchise get the 3-D treatment too. "We're doing 3-D for the DVD of '7, Part 1,' and there's been no discussion of anything else yet," producer David Heyman told MTV News recently. "But I suspect the studio is going to be reluctant to let it die, and if there's an opportunity to maybe enrich ... "
Heyman left it at that, but those hints jibe with what he told us as far back as March 2010, when he said of converting the entire series, "I'm sure it's just a matter of time."
For now, filmmakers are racing to finish "Deathly Hallows, Part 2" ahead of the July release and working on the conversion of the first part for the Blu-ray.
"We're very pleased with the way 'Part 1' is going — the 3-D for the Blu-ray," producer David Barron said. "It's really exciting, really involved."
"I was surprised at how wonderful it is," Heyman added. "It is different in some ways [than the theatrical release], but it's enriching."
Additionally, they're continuing to work on theatrical 3-D effects for "Part 1," a process that has not yet been finished. "We haven't completed the first part in 3-D for film release, for theatrical," Barron said.
"The quality is quite different," Heyman explained. "It's much easier, in a way, to do 3-D for a smaller screen than it is for a bigger screen."
