A One Direction Nickelodeon television show may not be in the cards anytime soon — which many Teen.com readers were happy to hear — but there’s still pretty awesome news that left hundreds of girls (some of whom began to camp out for the occasion last week) squealing during today’s episode of The Today Show. While promoting their now-released Take Me Home album, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, Zayn Malik and Harry Styles announced what may possibly go down as the biggest moment in 1D history: A 3D movie is happening!
Niall confirms, “So we are going to do our first-ever movie; it’s going to be in 3D, and it’s coming to cinemas near you on the 30th of August, 2013.”
Earlier this year, rumors swirled about a potential One Direction film with a release date of November 8, 2013 — so this confirmation’s even better because it’s over two months sooner! After the success of Justin Bieber‘s Never Say Never, experts suggested that “the 1D film would be similar to Justin’s movie and will be a big money-spinner for the boys.” Except, unlike the Bieber flick, this is not a concert movie. Instead, this will focus on the boy bander’s lives as they prepare for their first tour and second album.
What do you think of the 1D flick news? Pretty huge, eh? Join the conversation in the comments or on our One Direction message board, and make sure to watch their performances of “Live While We’re Young,” “What Makes You Beautiful” and their newest single, “Little Things,” (though, a another fresh single comes out this week) below!
