James Ivory Will Film Richard II in 3D

Mather Brown, Richard II resigning
the Crown to Bolingbroke (1801)
CBC News reports that Remains of the Day director James Ivory will shoot his Richard II, starring Tom Hiddleston, in 3D: 
After watching Avatar in 3D, Ivory said he thought: "This could be useful. . . . I think if you're going to do something set in the 14th century, in period, in 3D, it will be like something from Mars practically, I think. It will be strange and effective."

Why 3D? I love this play; it doesn't need gimmicks.
I usually avoid 3D, but I'm excited to see how Ivory uses it.
