Lest you go a year without a major pop act making you wear silly 3D glasses, Katy Perry’s latest California Dreams tour is being outfitted for the big screen. The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed earlier reports that studios were interested in transforming Perry’s candy coated live show into a 3D film—get those minds out of the gutter—in the same vein as Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never. Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz, collectively known as the industry duo Magical Elves, are in talks to direct the film under Paramount Pictures, with Craig Brewer on hand as executive producer.
Brewer has experience with music-related films, having helmed Oscar-winning Hustle & Flow (2005) and last year’s Footloose remake, while the Magical Elves team has worked in reality television for the last decade, creating and producing shows like Top Chef, Project Runway and the forthcoming Fashion Star. Perry’s film is said to include behind-the-scenes footage and personal interviews, which plays to the strengths of Cutforth and Lipsitz. With her oversized personality and penchant for wacky fashion choices, a concert film feels like the right fit, if only so fans can see how often she actually dies her hair and what she and Rihanna wear while Skyping one another before bed. It’s not an full-length acting role, but it’s a step in the general direction. Your move, Harvey Weinstein.
