Katy Perry Getting Her Own 3D Concert Movie
Last summer, Paramount Pictures hit the jackpot when they produced Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, a 3D concert film directed by Jon M. Chu. While the movie only received middling reviews, it made a killing at the box office, grossing $73 million domestically and $98 million internationally on a $13 million budget. For that reason it's no surprise that the studio is interested in creating another new 3D concert film, the question is who they will have to star in it. Now they have their answer.
Deadline reports that Paramount is now making a deal to make a new concert film about none other than pop sensation Katy Perry. Interestingly enough, the concert footage has already been shot by director Nanette Bernstein, but the movie won't simply be a spliced together stage performance. Instead, the project will also have what the website is calling "a real story," as it will look back at Perry's life growing up and becoming one of the biggest musical acts in the world. Multiple studios have looked into the film, however, Paramount is a natural fit due to the success of Never Say Never. The current plan is to release it in either June or July of this year.
I can imagine that this movie will make a ton of money no matter what, but I do have a very simple idea for the marketing department. In addition to the 3D glasses, all testicle-carrying members of the audience will have the option of purchasing ear plugs. That way they can enjoy the silence while Perry warbles songs like "I Kissed A Girl" and "Firework" and still enjoy watching big boobs in 3D.
