"Glee" 3D concert film opening in August
LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - A 3D feature version of the upcoming "Glee Live! In Concert!" North American tour will hit theaters for a two-week run on August 12, Fox said Wednesday.
Starring 14 members of the television show, "Glee Live! 3D!" will be shot live during the summer concerts, capturing both the concert and backstage moments with the characters.
The tour gets underway May 21 in Las Vegas and wraps June 18 in Uniondale, New York, before moving on to the U.K. The film will be directed by Kevin Tancharoen ("Fame").
"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," said "Glee" 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."
Going on tour are Glee stars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowtiz, Mark Salling, Dianna Agron, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris, Harry Shum Jr., Chord Overstreet, Darren Criss, Ashley Fink and members of The Warblers.
