Rumor: GI J.O.E. 2 might be 2D only

John Chu is a man who makes 3D movies. Both of his last two movies on his resume were conceived and filmed for 3D, and he had hoped that he would be able to incorporate the technology into his next film. Seems that might not be the case after all.

I really want to do it in 3D, but the decision hasn’t been made yet. A lot of factors that go into that, which I think it’s good to have a big discussion about. I think it’s going to be perfect for it, but there are other factors that are built into it—how it slows you down, things like that. But I could try some other things if it wasn’t in 3D; it would change my whole view of how I would make this movie, so we’re trying to figure it out.

I feel for the guy. Sounds like someone doesn’t want to commit the moolah needed to have the film ready by the already announced release date of August 10th 2012. Special effects can take a long time and a rush job is noticeable so I hope that they make a reasonable decision within a reasonable amount of time. I’ll share more news as soon as it’s received.

  1. Unless a film is specifically filmed for 3D, I dont care to see it in the format.

    Avavtar is still the only film that exists and 3D actually felt neccesary and added tot he story, in every other film Ive seen it is simply a distraction.

    It pissed me off that trying to see Thor in 2D was such a chore…

  2. im not interested in this movie I wont go to the theater to see it its more of a rental for me.

    they dropped the ball on GI JOE with the first movie it was ok but no wow factor .

  3. So we got a talented director who can film a decent 3-d film. BUT the studio doesn’t want to cough up the dinero to make that happen.

    sooooooo well get probally another sub-par film.

    Thanks Joe!
    now I know(not to go!)…and knowing is half the battle.

    1. Sounds like the studio doesn’t want to cough up the money to make the film AT ALL. This report and others has me wondering what the projected budget of the film is anyway?
