3-D film to capture "Glee" Live! tour
A 3-D film spawned from the upcoming "Glee" concert tour will be in theaters for a two-week run beginning Aug. 12.
The movie -- dubbed "Glee Live! 3D!" -- will feature 14 cast members from the hit Fox-TV program, who open a North American concert tour May 21 in Las Vegas. Kevin Tancharoen ("Fame") will direct, and "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy is producing.
"We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity," Murphy said in a statement. "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."
Among the songs the "Glee" crew are expected to perform are covers of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," Britney Spears' "I'm a Slave 4 U," Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" and Pink's "Raise Your Glass," as well as some originals from the show.
"Glee" cast members in the North American touring troupe are Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Mark Salling (Puck), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Naya Rivera (Santana), Heather Morris (Brittany), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike), Ashley Fink (Lauren Zizes), Chord Overstreet (Sam) and Darren Criss (Blaine).
