One Direction Movie Coming

( 4UMF NEWS ) One Direction Movie Coming:

One Direction is heading to the big screen. Sony Pictures is making a behind-the-scenes 3D movie based on the boy band behind the hit What Makes You Beautiful.

Morgan Spurlock will direct the project, and TriStar Pictures will release it Aug. 30, 2013.

Spurlock, who helmed the well-regarded documentaries Super Size Me and The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, is producing with Simon Cowell, who discovered the band on his X Factor U.K. reality show in 2010. Also producing are Ben Winston and Adam Milano.

One Direction comprises Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. The band developed a strong following across the pond before hitting the U.S. market in March, when the group’s debut album, Up All Night, entered the U.S. Billboard 200 chart at No. 1; it was the first time a U.K. group had achieved that feat.

The latest album, Take Me Home, hit stores Monday.
