Michael Jackson's iconic 14-minute "Thriller" video is about to become realer than ever. In an interview with the NY Daily News, the original video's director, John Landis, announced that he has been hard at work for months on making a 3-D version of the classic video, and is aiming to release the project in 2015.

The 3-D version of the video was finally put into motion after a long legal dispute between Landis and Jackson's estate was settled. To get fans even more excited, there has been talk that the short film/music video will be hitting theaters in 2015, as well as a special Blu-Ray promotional release. “It is going to reappear in a highly polished and three-dimensional way that is very exciting on the big screen," said Landis of the upcoming project.

A source close to the Jackson family confirmed the news with the NYDN, and said that it was always Michael's vision to release the video in this format, and that the a 3-D performance was originally in the plans for his London "This Is It" concert.
