Will 3-D change screenwriting?

In The LA Times, Steve Zeitchik considers whether screenwriting will be changed by the growing trend of films made in 3-D.
"You build sequences differently when you know things have to pop out and jump at you," says Kieran Mulroney, who with his wife, Michele, is writing the "Sherlock Holmes" sequel, which has been the subject of a number of 3-D conversations at studio Warner Bros. "I fear that if every movie becomes spectacle for the sake of spectacle, where does that leave the intimate conversation across the dinner table?"

  1. Well-founded fears - the last couple of times the 3D fad came and went, it left us with a handful of average movies with odd 'moments' that no longer work unless you remind yourself that there was probably a depth-related effect at that point. You can see their contemporary equivalents in the making.
