The Black Eyed Peas are set to release the ultimate concert movie, filmed in 3D and helmed by the biggest director of all time, James Cameron, says the band’s will.i.am.
“Right now we are planning our 3D tour movie and James Cameron is directing it,” will.i.am tells Vibe magazine.
“We have the biggest director because we are the biggest group on the planet. The Peas are filming it in South America. People will be able to see us in the theater with the 3D glasses and everything.”
“There will be a storyline that [Cameron] came up with, which will be dope,” the Peas’ frontman says. “It’s a full-length film and it’s based around our tour activities. We’ve toured from America and Europe, to the Middle East, South America, Asia and Africa.
“It’s not like we go, ‘Yo, we are international, you know what I’m saying? London and Paris!’ Nah, that’s just two cities. We want to go across the planet.”
The as-yet-untitled Black Eyed Peas concert film isn’t set for release until early next year. In the meantime, will.i.am also rebuffs the rumors of strain with singer Fergie.
“Fergie wants to do another solo record, so of course we are going to do that,” he says. “We have material ready for that. But right now we are focused on the Peas — our world tour and the movie.”
