"Calling All Robots": Disney, Zemeckis, Performance Capture and 3D?

Disney is teaming with Robert Zemeckis' ImageMovers Digital to bring us a performance capture movie entitled "Calling All Robots" which will utilize the very same technology used in "Beowulf". This obviously hints at the project being 3D, but this has not been confirmed as of yet. I'm working on it!

Michael Dougherty will write the movie which is said to lean on the history of Godzilla genre pictures. He also wrote "Trick 'r Treat" (due for release soon) as well as the big budget "X2: X-Men United", "Superman Returns" and "I, Lucifer".

This is yet another feature project that was brought to fruition because of today's exciting performance capture technology - it simply was not possible before now. That gets my blood pumping let me tell you; remakes and sequels are all well and fine but when Hollywood starts bringing out the projects that were collecting dust because of technical challenges - it lights a fire. It is exactly what we need right now - challenging projects that push the envelope of what is possible. Add in that third dimension and you have the immersion and originality that is so sought after today. Onward and upward!

Check back for 3D updates on this project!
