Fox to release 3D ‘Glee’ concert pic

Ryan Murphy to produce 'Live!' tour feature

Twentieth Century Fox will release a 3D version of “Glee Live! In Concert!” for a limited two-week engagement starting Aug. 12.

“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy will produce, with “Fame” helmer Kevin Tancharoen directing.

Pic, a co-production between Fox’s TV and film divisions, will feature 14 cast members from the popular series, who begin touring North America on May 21 in Las Vegas. Tour ends its U.S. leg on June 18 in New York before moving to the U.K.

The film will include such “Glee” covers as “I’m a Slave 4 U,” “Raise Your Glass,” “Teenage Dream” and “Lucky,” as well as the original songs “Loser Like Me,” “Hell to the No!” and “Get It Right.”

Fox’s “Glee” tour marks the most recent 3D concert offering to hit theaters after Paramount successfully released “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” with a domestic cume of $73 million. Disney’s “Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour” earned $65 million at the box office in 2008.

Both “Never Say Never” and “Hannah Montana” played longer than “Glee’s” planned two-week engagement.

Tickets for the 3D “Glee” tour went on sale in February and, according to Fox, sold quickly enough that the studio decided to add additional performances.
