3D Shorts: HAPPY FEET 2 In 3D; Weta's Growing; GEARS OF WAR 3D?

Jim here. Here are some rapid fire 3D news to keep you all up to speed!

~HAPPY FEET 2 will be in 3D! I will not refrain from expressing my enthusiasm for this sequel because I LOVED the first one - the soundtrack was superb. Release is pegged for November 18, 2011.

This is a movie franchise that is a pleasure to bring your family to see. I hope they can whip up more of the music magic once again!

~Peter Jackson's Weta is spawning a new working group called Transfx, headed up by Sebastian Sylwan who was previously the Director of Technology at Digital Domain and CTO @ the FX shop Lumiq. They will seek to bring a pragmatic edge to the new tech that Weta has developed by working on AVATAR and TINTIN: Making their FX reuseable/malleable for other projects.

This, of course, is a great idea. Hats off to the Weta team who are definitely in this thing for the long run!

~GEARS OF WAR still in the works! MTV recently spoke to Chris Morgan, screenwriter for GoW: "A draft went in and we’re talking about it now and we’re budgeting it out,” Morgan told MTV. “It’s looking incredibly good." Len Wiseman is still attached to direct. "It’s huge,” Morgan declared of the project’s scope. “One of the things they’re really talking about now is the budget of the film and how big of a spectacle this is going to be. My argument is, look at the underlying material. Look at the game and the scenario — the fact that the world is being taken over by the Locust, it has to be huge." Still no official word on this being shot in 3D - but, sometimes you just KNOW. Wiseman likes the idea. :-)

This movie will indeed be massive. At the box office too! Are you kidding me; GoW in 3D? A no-brainer.
