November 9, 2009 at 9:51 AM (PT)
BNA/NASHVILLE star KENNY CHESNEY is teaming with SONY MOTION PICTURES division THE HOT TICKET, to bring "KENNY CHESNEY: Summer in 3D" to theaters. The film, which aims to bring the intensity of CHESNEY's stadium show to the screen, will hit theaters in APRIL 2010.
CHESNEY said: I'd seen U2's movie and was blown away. It was like something I'd never seen - and I wondered what would happen if we tried to capture some of what was going on like that… How would it look, because this is more straight up… When we did, everyone who saw the footage agreed, and we started taking this project very seriously. Then when major movie studios were interested in working with us… a company with such specialized expertise as not just SONY MOTION PICTURES, which is crazy, but their HOT TICKET division which understands very specifically the challenges of a 3D movie, well, we went for it.”
The footage was shot in PITTSBURGH, PHILADELPHIA, SEATTLE, BOSTON and INDIANAPOLIS with 22 3D camera rigs. Tickets will be available at www.thehotticket.net.
