Top Gun Coming Out in 3-D!

Paramount Pictures

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Maverick, Goose and the rest of the ‘fly boys’ will land back in movie theaters in 2012 when ‘Top Gun’ is re-released in 3D.

The 2D to 3D conversion is being accomplished at Legend3D, whose CEO Rob Hummel introduced the clip as well as its unique business model during an IBC panel.

“We think there is great potential for catalog titles in 3D, but studios have had trouble justifying the expense,” Hummel said, explaining that Legend 3D is funding and doing the conversion for Paramount.

“As I understand it, they are planning to release it in 3D in early 2012, though I known they want to get Tony Scott’s approval before they go forward,” he said, explaining that Legend 3D effectively has a revenue sharing deal with Paramount.

“I think Top Gun lends itself to 3D due to the aerial flight,” he said of the project. “You can have fun with 3D by bringing things off the screen if they are not attached to the edge of the screen.

Wish I could show you a 3-D example, but, alas, not able to on the computer.  I can give you Top Gun fans an exciting scene…the volleyball game.  Down ladies, down!
