Confirmed: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 and 2 to be shown in 3D

Nikki Finke and The Hollywood Reporter – two very reliable sources in the movie industry – are both reporting Warner Brothers has confirmed its plans to make Deathly Hallows, Part 1 a 3D film.

Word about Warner Brothers considering 3D for most of its 2010 films first surfaced last week. From Nikki Finke:

Additional titles in 2010 that will be released in 3D (in addition to 2D) include Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore (July), Guardians of Ga’Hoole (September), and Harry Potter and Deathly Hallows, Part 1 (November) — and I'm told Part II as well at a later date

Said Dan Fellman, President, Domestic Distribution, Warner Bros Pictures, in the announcement, “We are experienced and have been successful in the conversion of 2D to 3D going back to such hits as The Polar Express, select scenes in Superman Returns and the last two Harry Potter films.” Fellman continued, “The results for Clash of the Titans will be presented onscreen with the highest-quality images available today.”

Jeff Robinov, President, Warner Bros Picture Group, said, “We’re excited about 3D and look forward to bringing a rich, involving visual experience to audiences around the world.”
