Is ‘The Green Hornet’'s 3D Conversion a Smokescreen for Other Problems?

Is The Green Hornet's 3D a 'smokescreen' for bigger problems? We reported last week that an upcoming superhero film was being pushed for a 3D "enhancement" and now it seems there may be deeper problems with the film. Hollywood Elsewhere is reporting that there are several other problems at the heart of The Green Hornet, which is now set for a January 14, 2011 release. Here's what the site's source had to say.

"Sony is not merely converting The Green Hornet into 3-D, but rewriting and reshooting sizable chunks of the movie. The action sequences don't cut together and [are saddled with comprehension issues]. This isn't a conversion -- it's an overhaul using 3-D as a smokescreen."

This seems to back up IESB's initial story that we reported on earlier this month. Sony any trouble with the film in announcing the 3D conversion/enhancement, though.

We'll be sure to keep you posted as soon as we have any new information on The Green Hornet.

The Green Hornet was released January 14th, 2011.

    I hope the film isn't as bad as what's being said about it. I was really looking forward to seeing this.

    Man, I feel bad for this movie. Hopefully it doesn't suck royally. The fact that they're doing 3D after the fact (which I fear will be commonplace for the next few months) troubles me. Will 3D really bring in that much more money? Also, is that a rhetorical question?
