Concerning this matter, IMAX spokeswoman Sarah Gormley, as reported by E! Online, has given her explanation about the 3-D conversion process. "Obviously, the entire industry is thinking about 3-D, but each film is looked at and negotiated one at a time," so she has said, indicating that a decision on the eye-popping format will come once principal photography is complete.
