She may be responsible for an increase in young girls spending time in hospital due to firework-bra related emergencies, but that hasn’t stopped the singer from experiencing some massive fame in the world of music.
Now, it seems that the California Girls artist is heading to the big screen, with a deal from Paramount Studios being ironed out currently. IN 3D!
While still in the early stages, the deal-negotiating between Imagine Entertainment, Paramount and the Perry camp are reportedly quite strong, THR reports, with the various groups eager to get the project rolling.
Sources at Paramount claim that the production company wants to use the same model of film-making that was present in the (shudder) Justin Bieber film, Never say Never.
Released almost a year ago, the Justin Bieber film raked in over $73 million, a record that has only been surpassed by the Michael Jackson: This is it movie, which earned over $261 million at the box office.
Concert films have seen a resurgence in recent years, from Disney owned singers such as Hannah Montana and The Jonas Brothers to the deceased King of Pop himself.
Its easy to see why studios are keen on making these films as well. They’re relatively cheap to film and quick to produce, and with an installed fan-base already present, easy to market.
With Perry being a colourful and peppy stage act already, this might just be the perfect project for her to appear in. IN 3D!
