Yes they are making a “Glee” film, but not in the way you think.
20th Century Fox is set to produce “Glee Live! 3D”, a feature film based on the “Glee Live! In Concert!” North American tour reports Deadline.
“Fame” helmer Kevin Tancharoen will direct the concert movie which features performances by series regulars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Mark Salling, Dianna Agron, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris, Harry Shum Jr, Chord Overstreet, Darren Criss, Ashley Fink.
Various behind the scenes moments will also be incorporated, and the studio will release the film for a two-week engagement starting August 12th.
The move is a smart one – cashing in while the Fox show is still red hot. Plus concert tour films like “Michael Jackson: This Is It” and “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” have shown to be quick money makers and are quite low cost to assemble.
