The concert movie trend has been a little hit or miss in recent years, with some scoring huge– Justin Bieber’s Never Say Never– and others, like Katy Perry’s Part of Me, failing to make much of an impact.

But it’s still a pretty good strategy to team up with a pop sensation and release a movie about them, and Sony Pictures will be next to get in on the game, planning a new concert documentary about British boy band phenoms One Direction.

Simon Cowell, who is credited with “discovering” One Direction on the UK version of The X Factor, is on board as a producer, and had the following to say in announcing the film:

“I’m delighted we’re making this film and Morgan is the perfect person to give that access-all-areas, behind-the-scenes look into what it’s like to be One Direction today. What the band have achieved is incredible, they and their fans have made history around the world – this is for them.”
