Morgan Spurlock to Direct 3D One Direction Movie

     November 13, 2012


Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock is tackling an incredibly popular object of interest for his next film.  THR reports that Spurlock will helm a behind-the-scenes 3D movie about the boy band One Direction.  It’s baffling news, honestly, as the subject matter seems odd for the Super Size Me and Comic-Con: A Fan’s Hope director. Nevertheless, Spurlock’s involvement likely drums up interest from fans who would otherwise be indifferent to the prospect of a 3D feature film about the tween-worshipped British pop group.  Spurlock will produce the pic alongside former American Idol judge Simon Cowell, who discovered the band as part of the UK iteration of The X-Factor.

The film will reportedly blend concert footage and scenes of musician life “that purports to give fans a glimpse into the real artists.”  TriStar Pictures is behind the project and a release date of August 30, 2013 has already been set.
