“Sherlock Holmes” sequel could join “Airbender” and “Green Hornet” in 3-D

Hollywood’s current fascination with 3-D shows no signs of slowing down.

News broke earlier this week that two anticipated projects were converting to the third dimension. Paramount announced via press release that M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Last Airbender” would upgrade prior to its July 2 release. Meanwhile, Michel Gondry’s take on “The Green Hornet,” with Seth Rogen in the lead, that’s currently in production for Sony moved its release date back from December 2010 to Jan. 14, 2011, to accommodate the effects work needed to complete the 3-D conversion.

Now Kieran and Michele Mulroney, writers of a planned “Sherlock Holmes” sequel, have told the L.A. Times that “a number of serious conversations” are being held at Warner Bros. about shooting the film in 3-D. Though discussions are still being held, the writers admitted to the paper that they were “open to it.”

“Sherlock would be great in 3-D,” Kieran told the newspaper.

As directed by Guy Ritchie, the first “Sherlock” adventure certainly upped the physical action for stars Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. And the final confrontation atop the half-constructed London Bridge could have looked more impressive with some added depth.

Decisions like this are important, as we’ve seen with films like “Clash of the Titans” that 3-D conversion made too late in the game doesn’t add much to an already 2-D image, and actually creates vision issues that can cause headaches. Movie bloggers and critics took Warner to task for its “Clash” conversion, but deciding to film in 3-D from step one could bring a project closer to the industry standard — James Cameron’s “Avatar.”
