Fox Announces 'Glee Live! 3D!' Concert Film in Theaters By August
Glee is coming to theaters OMG! Okay, confession, yea I'm a little bit of a "Gleek", it's an entertaining show, now don't throw slushees at me please. 20th Century Fox will be combining TV and Film to present a special two-week limited engagement of GLEE LIVE! 3D! (yes, in all caps) in theaters starting August 12th! The news was announced via Deadline/THR. The movie will "capture the unique concert experience" from the upcoming live tour, along with "special moments involving the characters" which includes 14 of the cast members. Oooh, ahh. This will of course be a big, spectacular 3D event, so you won't want to miss it. Right?
"This tour was all about going out and performing for our amazing fans who have supported our show from the beginning, but due to the limited time we had to travel during our hiatus, there were only so many cities we could get to before we had to resume work on the television series," commented series co-creator Ryan Murphy. "We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity. Now, thanks to our friends at Twentieth Century Fox Film, we'll be able to bring the concert experience to movie theaters across the country in full three dimensional glory. We promise every passionate 'Gleek' a cinematic experience that will have them singing and dancing in the aisles." Goodness. If you hate dancin' in your aisles during movies, better stay out of all these theaters during August. But if you're a Gleek, go wild!
Here's the best part of the news - directing the GLEE LIVE! 3D! movie will be Kevin Tancharoen, a choreographer and filmmaker on the rise who is also the director behind that gritty, badass Mortal Kombat: Legacy online web series. Crazy, eh? If you want to read about some of the songs that will be performed, you can hop over to ComingSoon. Fox is taking advantage of the "concert spot" that Sony used to make Michael Jackson's This Is It concert doc so successful, but who knows if that'll work again. Yea, don't hate on this is you're not a fan of the show, because that's exactly who this movie is for. And if you are a fan, let us know!
