StudioCanal steps into 3-D

'Around the World' to go worldwide

By John Hopewell, Elsa Keslassy

StudioCanal, Europe's biggest film company, is putting its might behind 3-D, as stereoscopic entertainment ramps up across the region.

The Gallic minimajor has inked a worldwide distribution and sales deal on "Around the World in 50 Years," from Belgium's nWave Pictures and "Fly Me to the Moon" helmer Ben Stassen.

But that is just the tip of a 3-D iceberg, according to Olivier Courson, chairman of StudioCanal, the movie production-distribution arm of Vivendi paybox Canal Plus.

StudioCanal is also part of a digital 3-D work group set up by French distributors, exhibitors, third-party 3-D facilitators and the Centre National de la Cinematographie, the government org that regulates and promotes the film and TV industry.

Interesting. 3D theaters are (too) rare in Europe, maybe this will inspire the industry to pick up on that.
