Surprised to read this in the newest Empire magazine:
The production has been complicated not just by a furore over Will Smith`s enormous motorhome, which drew complaints from residents of downtown New York, but the decision to shoot in 3D. "Honestly, at the moment it`s more of a chore for Barry and (director of photography) Bill Pope," says Parkes candidly.
"Barry`s style as a comic director tends to be very flat and wide. It`s all about great big wide shots, with something funny going on in the background while there`s a deadpan conversation in the foreground. That`s really tricky to do in 3D. On the other hand, the action sequenses and locations - we actually start the film on the moon - will really pop in 3D.
