Forget Star Wars! Morgan Spurlock to make a 3D concert film about boy-band One Direction!

11.14.2012by:

So, the second biggest announcement of the year has arrived, inching just ahead of the news that there would be a new Star Wars trilogy. Yep, you guessed it; Morgan Spurlock, director of SUPERSIZE ME, will make a 3D concert film for the British boy band One Direction for 2013!

"This is an incredible opportunity and an amazing moment in time for the band, said director/producer Spurlock. "To capture this journey and share it with audiences around the world will be an epic undertaking that I am proud to be a part of."

Producer Simon Cowell, who discovered the band through his show The X-Factor, echoed Spurlock's comments, saying, Im delighted were making this film and Morgan is the perfect person to give that access-all-areas, behind-the-scenes look into what its like to be One Direction today. What the band have achieved is incredible, they and their fans have made history around the world this is for them.

So, this is pretty random, given that Spurlock is known more for his quirky documentaries that tackle topics like fast food, manscaping, branding, and comic con. Now that I think of it, I guess throwing in a boy band film fits well within his parameters, but not as a straight concert film, a la KATY PERRY: PART OF ME. I guess we'll see, but Spurlock hasn't done much to impress in my opinion. Maybe this will be his true calling.

The yet-to-be titled One Direction concert film will get supersized in 3D on August 30, 2013.

Extra Tidbit: I don't get 3D concert films. How is this a good use of 3D? Can someone explain?

Dont care for this either way

Spurlock's films tend to be more entertaining than informative. You dont need to show me charts or examples that McDonalds is unhealthy. I know that the advertisement industry spends Billions promoting things in more ways than you notices. His films state the obvious truth but it a fairly lighthearted and entertaining way.

This however just seems weird. I dont know if he's actually passionate about making a film about the success of this genre and its legions of fans, or if its a gimmick

He's probably doing it for the money, but hey who wouldn't.

Ok this is certainly an odd ball choice, but maybe he will be good at it. I will never know, cause I'll never watch it. Not that I hate Morgan, cause I think his documentaries are pretty fun! I'll never watch it, cause I'm not into teeny bopper boy bands. He did have a dancing Osama Bin-Laden in his 'Where In The World Is Osama Bin-Laden' documentary, so he's got that going for him! LOL!

I've never minded the guy, some of his stuff is pretty good, and by and large, I support working [link] but this will be terrible unless it's a mockumentary.

Spurlock is a one hit wonder to me.

Well a 2 hit wonder. The only documentary films I liked from him were Supersize Me and Comic Con: A Fan's Hope. Everything else he did was pretty crappy and had me turn away from his other work. That and he's kind of an ass.
