New Popeye Movie Will Be In 3D CGI
Relative newcomer Mike Jones is in talks to pen the script and has confessed that, “I’m an unabashed, lifelong Popeye fan. Introducing this squinty-eyed sailor to a new generation also means reintroducing him to those who, like me, grew up with him.”
The decision to see Popeye, Bluto, Olive Oyl and the gang in 3D hardly comes as a surprise and love it or hate it, it’ll soon become the standard, especially for animation. To use CGI instead of live action isn’t a shock either – it’s just a lesson learned from the 1980 live action version with Robin Williams and Shelley Duvall.
