Katy Perry 3D Concert Movie in Theaters This Summer
Katy Perry’s ready for her closeup…on the silver screen!
The pop powerhouse, who made her acting debut in the 2011 CGI comedy The Smurfs, has inked a deal with Paramount Pictures and Imagine Entertainment that will see her as the star of a 3D documentary-style concert film.
The 3D feature, titled Katy Perry: Part of Me, is expected to feature interviews and confessionals from Perry’s recently wrapped “California Dreams Tour,” as well as tons of performance footage of the “Teenage Dream” beauty in action.
An ecstatic Katy confirmed the news to fans in a tweet on Wednesday, writing:
“FINALLY, my MOVIE is coming out with Paramount this summer! It’s called “KATY PERRY: PART OF ME” Presented In 3D! KATYCATS-LETS TREND #KP3D…”
Perry is just the latest subject for a documentary-style concert film.
Paramount, as you may recall, is the same studio that brought the Justin Bieber concert film, Never Say Never, to cinemas last winter.
But it was Disney’s Hannah Montana / Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour started the trend in 2008. That film grossed $65 million. The Mouse repeated the success with Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience the following year.
The most recent such movie, Fox’s Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, opened last theaters in August.
Michael Jackson’s posthumous This Is It holds the world record for highest-grossing concert documentary.
