One Direction May Star In 3-D Film

Get your 3-D glasses ready. One Direction may be headed to a movie screen near you. According to British tabloid The Sun, the band will star in a 3-D movie that would begin filming next year.
It’s unclear exactly what the film will be like. The Sun reports that the band “will appear in either a scripted comedy or a documentary featuring clips of the lads in concert.” A source told the paper, “It’s early days but it’s something that their management and label are excited about. It may be documentary footage mixed with a concert film, or it could even be a comedy caper in the style of old Monkees films. All options are open, though they’re unlikely to get cracking on shooting it until next year.”
If this all sounds familiar it’s because it’s similar to Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never, which came out last year, and to Katy Perry’s upcoming 3-D flick Part of Me – both of which may be models for this type of movie, especially when it comes to generating income for the band. The source told The Sun, “US film experts are speculating that the 1D film would be similar to Justin’s movie and will be a big money-spinner for the boys.”

As for when this would come out? The Sun says the flick has a release date of November 8, 2013 (meaning it would go head-to-head with Thor 2), but the band’s camp has not confirmed that. A spokesperson for the band told MTV News that “nothing is confirmed at this stage and it’s too early to confirm any further activity for 2013.” It does seem like the news is legit, however. Band member Harry Styles told the paper, “The film could be exciting. My hair would be poking in your eye.” And isn’t that every fan’s dream?
