Glee fans are going to be summer lovin’ this news: An August 12 release date has been set for Glee Live! 3D!, a concert film based on the cast’s upcoming tour.
Glee creator Ryan Murphy will produce the pic, which will be in theaters for two weeks only, while Kevin Tancharoen (Fame) will direct.
Explaining the film’s genesis, Murphy says, “We knew that not every fan who wanted to attend a concert would get that opportunity. Now… 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.”
Seriously, it’ll be as if Mark Salling‘s fauxhawk is brushing up against your Sno-Caps.
The Glee Live! In Concert! series kicks off May 21, featuring Lea Michele (Rachel), Cory Monteith (Finn), Amber Riley (Mercedes), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Salling (Puck), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Naya Rivera (Santana), Heather Morris (Brittany), Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike), Chord Overstreet (Sam), Darren Criss (Blaine), Ashley Fink (Lauren) and members of “The Warblers.”
