Super Size Me filmmaker Morgan Spurlock is set to begin filming One Direction’s 3D concert movie this weekend in Tokyo, Japan, though he admits the technology isn’t popular with everyone. Spurlock explains “Once they can crack that nut of having a true 3D experience where you don’t have to have those glasses or sit at a certain angle, it will become a conversation again.” I, for one, would like to look like less of a dork when I have to put my 3D glasses over my regular glasses.
The documentary maker, who also admitted he was considered to direct concert films for Justin Bieber and Katy Perry, said he wanted to work with the group because he is fascinated by their meteoric rise to fame since competing on The X Factor UK in 2010. Spurlock explained “These guys have gotten so huge in such a short amount of time – why? What makes them more special than any other people?”
Morgan was recently praised by the band, comprised of Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik, as the perfect choice to work on their film. Niall said “Morgan works well because … he did a lot of documentary movies. That’s more so what we want our movie to be. It’s going to be a concert movie, but with a documentary side than concert side so we wanted to get our personalities across because the fans know us, but we want them to know us deeper.”
