Warner Brothers will release the next two ‘Harry Potter’ films in 3D. According to THR’s Heat Vision Blog, WB’s tests of converting Clash of the Titans to 3D have gone so well that studio execs have decided to not only release Clash of the Titans in 3D, but also the two-part Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in 3D.
Cost is relatively minor for the process, with each conversion expected to cost $5 million (so $10M between the two), although WB has offerred to pay for the cost of 3D glasses (an additional $5M each).
As pointed out in the article, WB hasn’t confirmed the news, but they are expected to confirm the announcement on Clash of the Titans by week’s end and an official announcement on the ‘Harry Potter’ films is also expected soon.
Clash of the Titans is now scheduled to hit theaters one week later on April 2, 2010 (originally scheduled for March 25th), while schedules for the two Harry Potter films remain on track for November 19, 2010 for ‘Deathly Hallows: Part I’ and July 15, 2011 for ‘Deathly Hallows: Part II’.
