Get ready for a Katy Perry concert movie because it is coming your way this summer — in 3-D, of course. The pop star announced the news herself via Twitter on Wednesday that “Katy Perry: Part of Me” is headed to a theater near you.
“FINALLY, my MOVIE is coming out with Paramount this summer!” Perry tweeted to her nearly 16 million followers. “It’s called “KATY PERRY: PART OF ME” Presented In 3D! KATYCATS-LETS TREND #KP3D”
Back in early February, news broke that Paramount had approached Perry and her camp about doing a documentary-style 3-D film à la the Jonas Brothers, Miley Cyrus, Michael Jackson, Justin Bieber and “Glee” before her. Clearly the discussions went well because five weeks later, the film not only has an official title but is already slated for release.
Paramount Pictures confirmed the project to MTV News.
Perry’s dedicated fans were quick to express their enthusiasm for the news.
“Omg omg omg just died a little!” @chlo_katycat tweeted, while @VirginiaMalik12 remained slightly skeptical but optimistic in hearing about the quick turnaround from development to release.
“Hah are you sure?” she tweeted at Perry. “Oh my god, i’m so excited. i will wait #KP3D .:)”
Although Perry is not currently on tour, she is keeping herself busy with a variety of projects. She is featured in the new Sims video game “The Sims 3: Showtime,” and is currently prepping for the March 26 release of Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection, an album that features all of her songs from her chart-topping album Teenage Dream plus some bonus tracks.
“With Teenage Dream, the reasons why I wanted to put out this special edition, Complete Confection, is two major reasons for me: One, I’m doing it mostly for the hard-core fans because they always love all the extras,” Perry told MTV News in Los Angeles. “The second reason I wanted to do it is because it’s my one last push, to push that person that is on the precipice of becoming a fan. They’re thinking to themselves, ‘I bought four or five singles, maybe I should actually complete my album and now I should really complete my album because I’m gonna get 19 songs for a really great price.’ I think it’s like a bargain and I’m doing it for my fans.”
