Now that we finally know the final book of the The Twilight Saga, Breaking Dawn, will be broken up into two films, we've got another situation to discuss; should Breaking Dawn be in 3D? As reported by MTV, Summit Entertainment caught the 3D bug from the success of its first flick to put the technology to use, Drive Angry. That film's director, Patrick Lussier, explained, "I think Summit has been discovering, as they've been seeing the 3-D material and the ease we've been able to work with it, is that it's an incredibly viable format to work in."
The format's practicality is definitely a plus, but that still doesn't justify shooting the Twilight's next installment in 3D. Studios seem to be forgetting that adding a third dimension doesn't mean you can cut back on quality and Summit is actually thinking about just that. The studio's distribution head, Richard Fay, admitted, "There's certainly a financial part of the discussion." But he also added, "And yes, there's a certain amount of technology that has to be considered and accounted for. But it really comes down to the creative folks." He even mentioned that Summit's 3D debate always comes back to the fans. "A big factor is the perception of our audience. What are their feelings going to be? If it lends itself to being a better movie because of 3-D, then that's the technology we'll use."
