Film director Peter Jackson is testing experimental 3D aerial footage in New Zealand as part of testing whether the technology could be used for his remake of the Dam Busters. The Lord Of The Rings director told The Daily Telegraph he wants to use new technology to make bombs leap out at the audience in his re-imagining of the 1954 classic war film. Jackson said: "I think a World War II bombing raid in 3D would be neat.".
As you know, Peter Jackson is involved with its WETA studion in the AVATAR adventure, so we are sure this 'Dambusters' will be great. See the details published by TVNZ here.
The original Dam Busters from 1955 is described here on IMDB.
