Simon Cowell wears new hat: The Movie Man
HollywoodNews.com: Simon Cowell is extending his renaissance man image to film producing.
The former “American Idol” judge plans to develop music-themed films following the success of British title “Street Dance 3D.”
“Simon wants to exploit his talent relationships and make music and dance-themed movies which are perennially popular at the box office,” says a Daily Express source.
“It’s great news for the British film industry as the company will be a one-stop shop with potential finance and distribution through Sony,” adds the source.
“Simon’s got such great instincts that it shouldn’t be long before he’s celebrating his first big blockbuster.”
Little does Cowell know that dance films don’t always kick up their heels at the U.S. box office. “Step Up 3D” tripped up at the domestic multiplex, becoming the lowest grossing chapter in the dance franchise with $41.8 million.
