The upcoming documentary movie will follow Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, and their co-stars during 'Glee Live! In Concert!' North American tour and its backstage moments.
"Glee" stars are getting their concert movie. 20th Century Fox TV and film divisions are planning to release a feature film entitled "Glee Live! 3D!", which footage is taken from "Glee Live! In Concert!" North American tour.
The movie will be in theaters for two weeks starting from August 12. With 14 stars of the TV version, "Glee Live! 3D!" will capture the concert moments, as well as behind-the-scene moments with the characters. Kevin Tancharoen, who directed "Fame", will serve as the helmer.
"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy opened up to The Hollywood Reporter, "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."
"We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity," Murphy continued. "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."
Coming to the tour are 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, Ashley Fink, Darren Criss and other members of The Warblers. The stars will kick off the domestic tour on May 21 and wrap it up on June 18, before moving on to the U.K.
