Katy Perry, Paramount contemplating a 3D feature film
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Justin Bieber did it recently. The late Michael Jackson managed it, as well. And now Katy Perry could be the latest pop star to make the leap to the silver screen … and in 3D!
The “Fireworks” singer, who has been in the headlines lately for her separation from comedian Russell Brand, has begun negotiations with Paramount and Imagine Entertainment for a potential 3D, documentary-style feature that will capture Perry on and off-stage in much the same way that “Never Say Never” caught up with Bieber.
THR, which breaks the story, says that no director has been hired and the dealmaking is in the very early stages. But with “Never” earning $73 million and Jackson’s “This is It!” nabbing $261.1M worldwide, it’s a no brainer on Perry’s part to try and cobble a project together.
“Perry could prove to be an ideal subject for a documentary-style concert film,” THR writes. “Not only is she a top-selling act, her core audience consists of teen girls, the same demo that made the Bieber, Cyrus and Jonas Bros. films successful. On top of that, her performances and style are so colorful and visual that they may lend themselves to the cinema experience.”
And as a red-blooded American male, I’m happy to admit that the idea of a 3D Perry is tantalizing. Make this happen, Paramount! It’s like printing money.
