Katy Perry Concert Movie: 3D Documentary Film In Development
More like big-screen dream, amirite? (What.) According to THR, Paramount -- buoyed by strong box-office returns for "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never" -- is in discussions with Imagine Entertainment to create a "documentary-style film" about pop star Katy Perry. In 3D, of course.
No deals are in place, but this will obviously be the greatest concert movie ever. Perry has unleashed a bevy of massive hits onto Top-40 radio over the last four years, including "I Kissed A Girl," "California Gurls," "Teenage Dream," "Firework," "Last Friday Night," "E.T.," and "The One That Got Away." As you may have heard, she also experienced a bit of personal life turmoil when her marriage to Russell Brand ended in December of 2011.
Concert movies have become du jour again in Hollywood following the successes of "Never Say Never," Michael Jackson's "This Is It" and "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour." Of course, the genre has also seen some notable flops, including "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie," which grossed an underwhelming $11 million last August.
Whether Kitty Purry fans will pay to see the flamboyant pop staple on the big screen -- especially when the film will be upcharged thanks to 3D -- remains to be seen. Though, really, who could pass up the chance to see something like the video for "California Gurls" in three dimensions? Exploding whipped cream cannon bras, y'all!
