Will There Be a Sequel to One Direction’s ‘This Is Us’ Movie?
Directioners, get ready to squeal once again. According to The Mirror, the band’s 3D concert movie, One Direction: This Is Us is getting a sequel.
“Yes, there will be a follow-up to This Is Us,” Morgan Spurlock, director of the 2013 movie, told the UK publication. “At this moment Ben Winston is with the band on their world tour filming what happens. He worked with me and is a great producer.”
Spurlock said one of their main motivations behind creating the sequel is an Oscar nomination. ”I know Simon Cowell wants the band to get awards for this and was upset when they missed out on being nominated in the music category for an Oscar on our film,” explained the director. “It was a good song and I was surprised that they weren’t even considered. This time he will want them to try again.”
Despite what Spurlock has said, the band’s rep tells MTV News there is no sequel planned “at this time” … so take from that what you will!
To date, This Is Us debuted at No. 1 and grossed $68 million worldwide. If One Direction does create a sequel, they will be joining Justin Bieber as pop artists with two full-length feature films.
