Something that bothers me quite a bit is that Alex Aja’s Piranha is being turned into a 3D movie during post-production. While some say it still looks great, I say it’s a crock of sh*t. This afternoon Lionsgate he’d their “annual” Saw press day where producer Mark Berg was on hand to discuss the 3-D process for their forthcoming Saw VII, which is to be helmed by David Hackl (Saw V). Read on for the skinny.
“Saw, just by the way it’s shot, lends itself to being a 3-D movie,” producer Mark Berg tells IGN. “We saw a test that somebody did, a minute of Saw transferred from 2-D to 3-D and it looked great. We’re not going to transfer VII, but we’ll actually shoot it in 3-D. We want to be able to build the sets in a way that takes advantage of depth. We’re going to design traps to come out at you. The pendulum trap that opened the last movie would have been great in 3-D. There’s a lot of the movie we’re planning through the victims eyes, seeing stuff as it comes toward them. But I think the audience wants those moments where the weapon comes into the audience.”
Jeez. I still can’t believe we’re talking about SAW VII…
