I'm Turning 3D, I Think I'm Turning 3D I Really Think So!!

It's getting all 3D up in here.

Men in Black 3D:

Showbiz 411's Roger Friedman reports he talked to director Barry Sonnenfeld, who revealed that Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones are returning as agents J and K, respectively, in Sony's Men in Black 3D (yes, in 3D).

The Green Hornet:

 Sony Pictures comedy "The Green Hornet" has been delayed again from a Christmas to a January 14th 2011 release reports Heat Vision.
The reason though is to allow 'Hornet' to undergo a 3D conversion. The extra time will apparently allow the production to "produce all of its visual effects shots in original 3D" and also five the studio a weekend frame with sufficient screens to release the film wide in 3D.

The Last Airbender:

On the same day Sony decided to convert the Seth Rogen action-comedy The Green Hornet to 3D, Paramount has decided to do the same thing with M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender, except that they have no plans to move it off its July 2 release date.

According to Variety, Paramount has been working for over a year testing the 3D conversion process with Stereo D, who also worked on Avatar, and three months ago, they showed Shyamalan some converted footage and he agreed to convert the full movie to 3D.

When all else fails, and we are at our last stand against 3D conversion, we can always count on Chris Nolan

Cinematical got a chance to speak to Batman Begins and The Dark Knight director of photography Wally Pfister, who said that there's a good chance the next Batman film won't be released in 3D . A full IMAX release is possible, however.

"What Chris and I have talked about is doing something cool and something interesting," Pfister said. "[Director] Brad Bird was [saying] 'you've got to shoot the whole thing in IMAX!' I was like, yeah, I've talked to Chris about that."

If you don't know how we feel about the the 3D conversion onslaught, check out this episode of Geek World.

Will Joss Whedon Be Avenged??

Avengers

So we haven't mentioned anything about the rumors/reports that Joss Whedon will be directing the upcoming Avengers, mostly because everything is just a rumor until its confirmed (I mean the guy from The Office was going to be Captain America according to every website a few weeks ago!), even though it's practically being reported as fact.

This news, however, of Joss Whedon directing and writing The Avengers (along with the possibility of him rewriting The First Avenger: Captain America script) seems pretty viable. First off he's freaking Joss Whedon, a name that has as much Geek cred as Stan Lee or James Cameron, thus he brings a huge fan base to the table from all over the world. Second he's a good director, (Serenity didn't do much at the box office but has become a cult hit on DVD), and most importantly he's used to wrangling a large cast of actors and actresses and coming out with a great product. This last part is integral especially when you think about all of the actors (and egos) that will be involved in The Avengers.

So we completely believe he's close to signing as writer/director of The Avengers (also since Dollhouse was canceled and with Cabin in the Woods done shooting, he has the ability to do it) and we think he's a great choice. He writes fantastic comedy and drama, he pulls out great performances, and he's got enough juice that he won't be prison bitched by any of the cast.

As for rewriting The First Avenger: Captain America, they're still casting, so it's possible (I recall he's had some practice on last minute rewrites for movies, I believe he did a lot of work on the script for a little movie known as Toy Story).
Most of all we think between his time writing comics like the X-Men and Buffy, along with everything else we've listed, it's a slam dunk!
Of course no one saw Angel being cancelled a few years ago, so hopefully in a few days we won't be reading "Whedon Out! Ratner in for Avengers!!!"
