3D Stars Wars Will Be Done Right!

Variety is confirming that Lucasfilm is in the midst of a 3D conversion of the Star Wars saga with news that The Phantom Menace 3D will see a release in 2012.  Many film fans have criticized the entire 2D to 3D conversion process.   And Lucasfilm’s John Knoll shares that view, stating:

I have been a vocal critic of some of the previous efforts at doing 3D conversions. (But) I think the problems that have been encountered are mostly because of budget and schedule, trying to ram the work though in too short a period of time.
Knoll, who is overseeing the conversion, is committed to ensuring that the Star Wars conversions are given the time to be done right.

“Lost” Producer Digs “The Event”, But Ratings Fall

Lost” writer/producer Damon Lindelof offer this positive statement about the new NBC series “The Event” on Twitter.  Of course, it also contains some of Damon’s trademark humor:

I think THE EVENT is swell, but if 24 and LOST really had a baby it would hate both its parents and regularly engage in torture.

Heh.  We actually think such good-natured comments could actually help the series.  However, the second episode saw a drop in viewership, with a 2.9/7 ratings/share, and estimated viewership of 8.9 million.

The second episodes also firmly placed “The Event” in science fiction genre with the reveal of extraterrestrial disclosure as a key to the series plot.

Michael J. Fox to Appear in “Teen Wolf” Series?

Moviehole has reported that MTV is trying to convince Michael J. Fox to have a recurring role in their “Teen Wolf” TV series.   This is a nice story.  But we think MTV is just seeking attention for their “Buffyesque” small screen take on the eighties franchise.  Cynical us.
