Sony Entertainment’s co-chairmen Amy Pascal and Michael Lynton, when interviewed by Forbes for “What’s next for movies?”, revealed the possibility that Spider-man 4 could be in 3D. There’s a lot of buzz surrounding this news, so I should point out that the 3D point came from a leading question, it is mere rumor and possibility at this stage. Nonetheless it is an exciting proposition.
What about for live action movies?
Pascal: I think James Cameron’s new movie [Avatar] could change the world. I think everyone is in anticipation thinking it’s going to be like Star Wars. It’s going to change the way you consume entertainment. I don’t know that it will ever be the way you see dramas, but I can’t say anymore that it won’t be.
Are you considering doing any live action movies in 3-D? What about Spider-Man 4?
Pascal: Could be.
Lynton: People are paying a premium to see movies in 3-D and that’s a very big deal. It’s never been done before that someone says you have to pay more to see Spider-Man than a romantic comedy.
