From “Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience” to “Michael Jackson’s This Is It,” the junction of music and cinema has grown very popular in recent years, and the Black Eyed Peas want in. In a recent interview with Vibe, BEP frontman Will.I.Am dished on the group’s plan for the ultimate concert experience with the help of mastermind director James Cameron.
“Right now, we are planning our 3-D tour movie, and James Cameron is directing it,” Will revealed. “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 3-D glasses and everything.”
With Cameron onboard, Will is convinced that the yet-untitled musical film will stand out among the rest with a “dope” story line. “It’s a full-length film, and it’s based around our tour activities,” he said about the film, tentatively scheduled to hit theaters early next year. “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.”
Despite Fergie telling MTV News that she wasn’t “even thinking about another solo album” last fall, it seems like she might have had a change of mind. Will.I.Am revealed to the magazine that the songstress does want to do another album on her own to follow up her smash debut, The Dutchess.
“Fergie wants to do another solo record, so of course we are going to do that,” he said. “We have material ready for that. But right now, we are focused on the Peas — our world tour and the movie.”
Just last week, Will denied rumors that he and Fergie were dueling in a band battle. “Don’t believe gossip about Fergie leaving the group (we are never breaking up) it’s all lies!!!” he tweeted.
