Directioners, are you ready to see the boys on the big screen… and in 3D???
Well, while August 30th might seem far away, you can at least be relieved to know that Niall, Harry, Zayn, Louis and Liam will begin shooting their 3D flick this weekend!
Reportedly, One Direction is set to put on two shows on the 18th and 19th in Tokyo, which will be filmed for the movie!
The British (and Irish) blokes will then go on to tour the U.K., U.S. and Canada, where they’ll pretty much take over the globe with their poppy tunes!
The 3D experience is said to contain concert footage mixed with behind the scenes moments, which we’re sure will please their Directioners!
As for the title of the movie? We guess they’re still working on that!
After all, the boys ARE all sorts of busy — they were recently in Ghana to help raise money for charity and will soon be back in London for tour rehearsals!
