If you can’t get tickets to see “Glee Live! In Concert!” when the cast of the hit show goes on tour, Fox has come up with a solution.
“Glee Live!” is being produced as a 3-D movie, to be directed by “Fame” helmer Kevin Tancharoen and will be released for a two-week period starting August 12.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie will follow the on-stage and backstage antics of the “Glee” crew as they hit the road this summer. Cast members Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Mark Salling, Dianna Agron, Naya Rivera, Heather Morris and Harry Shum, Jr. have already been announced as tour participants.
Relatively new "Glee" stars Chord Overstreet and Darren Criss are also on board, and Ashley Fink and members of the Warblers are also expected to pop up in the movie. Two mainstays who haven’t been mentioned are Jane Lynch and Matthew Morrison.
Either way, Ryan Murphy has promised that "Glee Live! 3D!" will be worth the cost of a 3-D ticket.
“We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity,” he told THR. “Now, thanks to our friends at Twentieth Century Fox Film, we’ll be able to bring the concert experience to movie theaters across the country in full three dimensional glory. We promise every passionate ‘Gleek’ a cinematic experience that will have them singing and dancing in the aisles.”
