Rumor: "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 3D?

Reports are now making their way around the internet regarding rumors that the upcoming "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" films are set appear in 3D upon their theatrical release.  A report originating on the Hollywood Reporter Heat Vision Blog reports that following early 3D conversion tests of the film "Clash of the Titans" by Warner Bros., the studio has decided to release "two-part "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 3D."  This report of a 3D "Deathly Hallows" comes online despite confirmation by WB, but notes that it believes "but an announcement [regarding its 3D release] on "Titans" is expected by week’s end, and official word on the "Potter"pics surely will follow."  The blog goes on to say that "Conversion expenses have been coming down, so each film will cost just $5 million to convert into 3D."

While this is very much an exciting possibility, until official word comes from Warner Bros., this news remains in the rumor category.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part One" is set for release on November 19, 2010, while "Part Two" is will hit theaters on July 15, 2011.

Thanks to Oli!

Wow! It would be cool to see it in 3-D but 3-D never really does make much difference.

Given the upswing in the 3D market, they would be crazy not to film it in 3D, so I think it highly likely there will be 3D showings at some point, and probably at release time.

I don’t see the point. The first part won’t have much effects, but it would be interesting to see Nagini coming out of Bathildas head in 3-D XDD

As long as this doesn’t entail the cheesy type of 3D with random stuff poking out towards you in the attempt to, literally, shove the technology in your face. I really loved the use of 3D in Avatar because there wasn’t such a heavy-handed use of the effects.

That would be great! I hope it doesn’t detract from the story/emotions, though.

I’m gonna watch “Clash of the Titans” first to see how this kind of 3D works. Ralph Fiennes is also on that movie so it’s so exciting…

I don’t know how much difference it will make if movie is in 3D, It’s not a huge deal for me. I’d hate it if they had everything poking out of the screen and those sort of effects. I saw Avatar in and something similar to that would be good for DH.

No. It’ll just ruin the movie, you don’t need to be modern and do a 3D movie to do a good one. Also, DH will be a long movie, and using those glasses for so long will only harm your vision and give you a headache.

I don’t mind 3-D, but I prefer it not to be, but now that I think about it it would be kind of cool.
