“This is an incredible opportunity and an amazing moment in time for the band,” said Spurlock. “To capture this journey and share it with audiences around the world will be an epic undertaking that I am proud to be a part of.”

The as-yet-titled 3D film will be released by TriStar Pictures on Aug. 30, 2013 (Labor Day Weekend). Spurlock, Ben Winston, Adam Milano and Simon Cowell, who discovered the group on the U.K. version of “The X Factor” in 2010, will produce the film.

Cowell said he’s “delighted” to be making the film and that Spurlock is the “perfect person to give that access-all-areas, behind-the-scenes look into what it’s like to be One Direction today.”

One Direction is Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. The band’s debut album, “Up All Night,” has sold 1.33 million copies in the U.S. since its March release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. It made history by being the first debut album from a U.K. act to enter the Billboard 200 as No. 1. Their second album, “Take Me Home,” was released today (Nov. 13).
