Clash of the Titans, Harry Potter VII to be 3-D

Looks like Avatar's success continues to persuade other studios to try out 3-D for its movies, as we expected: The latest movies to get 3-D-ified will includes the upcoming Clash of the Titans remake and the final Harry Potter movies.

Here's what The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog reported:

Early 3D-conversion tests on Warners' remake of "Clash of the Titans" have gone so well that—combined with boosted enthusiasm for 3D in the wake of the "Avatar" tsunami—the Burbank studio has decided to release not only "Titans" but also the two-part "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" in 3D.

Warners refused to confirm the decision Tuesday, but an announcement on "Titans" is expected by week's end, and official word on the "Potter" pics surely will follow.

Warner will push back the release of Clash of the Titan—which stars Avatar's Sam Worthington as Perseus—back one week to April 2.

Part one of The Deathly Hallows is slated to open on Nov. 19, and part two is scheduled for July 15, 2011.
