WAX NOT IN 3-D
Original reports about Dark Castle/Warner Bros. remake of HOUSE WAX that appeared here and elsewhere claimed that it would follow in the footsteps of the 1953 Vincent Price classic and be presented in 3-D.
Now a press release issued in Australia (where the film will be shot) states that?s not the case: ?The new version will not be in 3-D.? That?s a shame, given that the process proved itself with the box-office success last year of SPY KIDS 3-D (which has led Robert Rodriguez to begin work on a second dimensional project, another kid-oriented fantasy, at - appropriately enough - Dimension).
The release goes on to say that HOUSE OF WAX will be filmed entirely in Queensland, at the Warner Roadshow Studios and locations in the area, through late June 2004. The director?s full name is Jaume Collet-Serra, and he?s a celebrated commercials director from Barcelona, Spain. Casting will be announced soon.
