The program director meeting in Chicago once again led to a heated debate. The main discussion was the proposed re-release of Prince’s classic movie Purple Rain in 3D. The movie is set to feature unseen footage and will somehow include newly filmed footage that could include Rihanna and Jason Derulo.
“3D has destroyed everything,” said program director Jared Spelling. “I will go to war if it destroys the best rock movie ever made!” Many people agreed. However, most agreed that anything that resparkles Prince in his Purple Rain heyday couldn’t be all that bad.
Amir Khadesh, a music director in Indiana, believes that a 3D Purple Rain could work if it is done right. “Look at what they did to The Lion King. They took a classic and made it even more of a classic. Let’s hope they do the same to Purple Rain.”
What are your opinions of this. Could a re-release of Purple Rain in 3D help or hurt Prince’s strong legacy?
