LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Sony said on Thursday it would delay the release of “Green Hornet” to January 14 from December 22 so that it can give the Seth Rogen vehicle a 3D makeover.
The move to the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend marks the most recent of four dates penciled in for the comics-based actioner’s domestic debut.
To allow the “Hornet” move, Sony will shift comics-inspired vampire actioner “Priest” from a January 14 launch to March 4. “Priest” long has been tagged as a 3D production.
Sony said director Michel Gondry planned from the start of production for the possibility of “Hornet” being released in 3D, though his work to date didn’t include any 3D cameras.
