One Direction Boys Expected to Make $15 Million Each for Doing Film
$15 million. That’s the whopping payday that EACH member of the five person One Direction stands to make for their upcoming film, which may or not be a 3D concert doc. That’s a lot of cash and their pockets are getting fatter by the minute!
The band is set to start filming next year, with a source telling The Sun that the idea and the concept of the film have yet to be fully fleshed out. But given 1D’s level of fame, they can do whatever they want and the Directioners will turn up at the multiplex in droves.
The source said, “It’s early days but it’s something that their management and label are excited about. It may be documentary footage mixed with a concert film, or it could even be a comedy caper in the style of old Monkees films All options are open, though they’re unlikely to get cracking on shooting it until next year.”
The insider also said that the film is expected to be on par with Justin Bieber‘s ‘Never Say Never,’ which was a massive success at the box office, revealing, “U.S. film experts are speculating that the 1D film would be similar to Justin’s movie and will be a big money-spinner for the boys.”
While it’s not been determined if it will be a scripted film or a concert doc, it already has a Nov. 8, 2013 release date attached to it. ‘Thor 2′ is also slated for that release week. Something tells us the power of teenage girls could topple Thor. Never underestimate Directioners and their unconditional love.
Besides, what could be better than 1D in 3D, if it does indeed have a 3D element? NOTHING, not even a comic book hero.
