Zack Snyder shying away from 3-D for anticipated “Sucker Punch”

Hollywoodnews.com: Is the 3-D revolution already drawing to a close?
OK, it might be too soon to declare the current movement dead, but more and more filmmakers are shying away from the technology. For instance, Deborah Snyder, wife and producing partner of “Watchmen” director Zack Snyder, told Coming Soon that their anticipated girl-power film “Sucker Punch” would not be converted to 3-D in time for its March 2011 release because the earlier visual tests did not meet their high standards.
Good for them. If you sat through M. Night Shyamalan’s converted “The Last Airbender,” you know the technology isn’t there yet. And Snyder, who also helmed the visually arresting “300,” shouldn’t sacrifice such a vital component of his film — the look — just to cling to the 3-D bandwagon.
We may hear more in the coming weeks, as Snyder is expected to bring “Sucker Punch” clips to Comic-Con, so stay tuned.
