Katy Perry 3D Concert Film May Be in the Works
Katy Perry could be heading to the big screen. The pop star is reportedly in talks with Paramount Pictures and Imagine Entertainment to create a 3D film featuring live footage.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, it’s still early in the deal-making process, but with the ‘Teenage Dream’ singer’s star power, many sources believe it’s just a matter of time and working out the details.
The site also reports that the possible concert movie project will likely be created in the same style as ‘Justin Bieber: Never Say Never,’ which as earned a whopping $73 million since its February 2011 release. Paramount Pictures was also the backer for the 17-year-old’s film.
Judging by the track record for concert films, the odds of a successful run at the box office are in Perry’s favor. In 2008, Miley Cyrus released her ‘Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour,’ which grossed $65 million. One year later, the Jo Bros unveiled ‘Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience,’ which earned over $19 million domestically.
Other reports claim that Perry’s recent free show in Los Angeles would be taped for a California Dreams Tour DVD, but no release date has been set. Perry has already had a bit of success at the box office. She voiced the character Smurfette in the 2011 animated film ‘The Smurfs,’ which grossed over $142 million in theaters.
