Les Miserables - Tom Hooper Snubs 3d For Les Miserables

Subscribe Les Miserables

Tom Hooper has opted out of using 3D technology for his upcoming Les Miserables film over concerns for moviegoers who "physically struggle" with the format.
The Oscar-winning director admits he was "very tempted" to shoot in 3D to enhance the big-screen adaptation of the popular stage show and even filmed practice scenes to test out the technique.
But Hooper has decided to stick with more traditional methods to ensure fans with sight problems will enjoy the film too.
He explains, "I can definitely announce it's good old-fashioned 2D. If you have a certain type of eyesight (3D) can be more demanding than watching a normal movie.
"With a two-and-a-half hour film, I didn't want to make something that anyone might think, 'That's not for me, because I don't like the (3D) medium.'"
Hooper's Les Miserables, starring Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Anne Hathaway, is expected to start shooting early next year (12) ahead of a planned December (12) release.
