Glee fans, ever wish you could feel like you were a part of the action? Well, the hit TV show is about to make you feel that much closer as it makes its way into a 3D film on the big screen.
Fox television and film studios are partnering with Glee creator Ryan Murphy to produce Glee Live! 3D!, a film of the upcoming North American tour.
The film, starring 14 members of the television show, will be released in theaters for an exclusive two-week run on August 12th, 2011. It will be shot live, capturing both the concert and backstage moments with the characters. Kevin Tancharoen, who directed the 2009 remake of Fame, will helm the project.
Going on tour are Glee stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Mark Salling, Dianna Agron, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris, Harry Shum Jr., Chord Overstreet, Darren Criss and Ashley Fink.
“We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity,” said Murphy. “Now... we’ll be able to bring the concert experience to movie theaters across the country in full three-dimensional glory."
