Katy Perry Is Getting a 3D Concert Movie

Katy PerryFirst, there was Bieber Fever. Now, there will be Perry Dysentery. A Katy Perry concert movie, in the vein of Never Say Never, is underway!

Paramount is in discussion with the music artist to develop this new 3D documentary. Reportedly, the footage has already been shot by director Nanette Burstein, who adapted Robert Evans’ autobiography The Kid Stays in the Picture into a documentary film, and directed the romantic comedy Going the Distance. So at this point, it’s just a matter of the production process.

The story of the film will cover Perry’s upbringing and rise to fame, chronicling her progression from a young choir singer to an international music icon, with hits like “Teenage Dream” and “Firework.” 

Justin Bieber: Never Say Never was an extraordinarily popular and surprisingly well-received film, and it’s likely that the studios are hoping to replicate this success with a film about Perry. Surely, Katy Perry is a celebrated enough performer to garner a large following, but will her film have as great an influence as Bieber’s?

Staff editor Michael Arbeiter’s natural state of being can best be described as “mild panic attack.” His earliest memories of growing up in Queens, New York, involve nighttime conversations with a voice from his bedroom wall (the jury’s still out on what that was all about) and a love for classic television that spawned from the very first time he was allowed to watch “The Munsters.” Attending college at SUNY Binghamton, a 20-year-old Michael learned two things: that he could center his future on this love for TV and movies, and that dragons never actually existed — he was kind of late in the game on that one.
