MONTREAL, March 16 /PRNewswire/ - Kings Road Entertainment (KRE) of Los Angeles is preparing to upgrade 2D films into 3D thanks to a conversion technology developed by the Montreal firm I3DScope Corporation. Among the many projects of KRE that will make it a major player in the world of 3D is the establishment of a production centre. And Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver are a prospective site as well as three locations in the United States: North Carolina, Orlando and New Mexico.
Many projects for KRE
Kings Road Entertainment is known for making successful movies in the past, such as Kickboxer, All of Me, and The Big Easy. Now, with a new executive management team, including Michael Yedor, KRE Chairman, and former president of Telesis Communications, Telesis Airborne Group, and Dimitri Logothetis, KRE President of the Motion Picture Group, who has produced film and television for Warner Brothers, Sony, and HBO, Kings Road is back and found a whole new dimension for its previously made films. Making all of this possible for Kings Road is its game-changing technological developments and strategic alliances with major studios and investment partners.
With an exciting development slate, Kings Road is positioned to become the top provider of 3D product. Kickboxer 3D will be a re-imagining of the martial arts classic in 3D that will change the way action films are viewed.
In addition, KRE is in development on the remake of the Steve Martin classic All of Me with John Davis, the producer of such hits as I, Robot, Alien Vs. Predator, and The Heartbreak Kid, along with a soon to be announced, major Hollywood studio.
From 2D to 3D
With a library of many feature film titles to choose from, KRE is about to bring back some of your old favorites in 3D for the very first time.
How is this possible?
Kings Road has developed a strategic alliance with I3DScope, a Montreal based company, with a proprietary, game-changing, patent pending 2D to 3D conversion technology. Using this proprietary technology, Kings Road will convert existing films to 3D for re-release.
President, Dimitri Logothetis says, ''It's an exciting time in entertainment, 3D theaters, 3D broadcast, the internet, and smart phones have changed everything!''
New production center
The new executive management team has started the process of seeking out a cost-efficient production centre with enough experience in film and new media, and with a deep enough transmedia talent pool to support the company's continued growth. KRE has narrowed its search to include three Canadian cities: Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal; as well as three locations in the United States: North Carolina, Orlando and New Mexico.
In the words of Chairman Michael Yedor, Kings Road is a "legacy business that is poised to redefine the industry through its technology, making a major statement through new film production, foreign sales, library acquisitions, and its 2D to 3D conversion technology."
