Get ready for 1D in 3D! One Direction are releasing a 3D movie, and we’re already shaking, crying, and refreshing Fandango to order tickets.
The band announced the news live on the Today show this morning (November 13), where they were on hand to perform and celebrate the release of Take Me Home. “We’re going to do our first ever movie,” Niall Horan said, looking joyous and dazed at the biggest-ever Today crowd. “It’s gonna be in 3D and it’s coming to a theater near you on the 30th of August, 2013!”
The band are following in the steps of pop superstars like their pal Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, the Jonas Brothers, and Katy Perry. Except we think One Direction’s 3D movie may wind up being bigger than the rest–there are more band members to drool over, and it’s already going to be a hit overseas since they’re British (except the lone, adorbs Irishman Niall!).
Avid and longtime Directioners may remember reports back in May that the band were releasing a concert film, but their team was quick to quash those rumors. We’re guessing that it’s because the details and kinks weren’t worked out yet. And if rumors are true, it won’t be the only time we’ll be seeing a certain One Direction member on a silver screen. Harry Styles was rumored to be in talks to play none other than a young legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger in a biopic about the band!
It’s safe to say that we’d be content to hibernate from now until August. But since we can’t (stupid responsibilities and the whole “not being a Kodiak bear” thing), here are their performances from this morning to tide us all over!
