EXCLUSIVE: Director Morgan Spurlock Talks ‘One Direction: This Is Us’

EXCLUSIVE: Director Morgan Spurlock Talks ‘One Direction: This Is Us’

Almost 10 years ago, director Morgan Spurlock broke onto the scene with his enormously popular documentary Super Size Me, and since then, he has spawned a non-fiction empire, of sorts. Along with TV shows such as FX's 30 Days and his brand new CNN series Inside Man, the filmmaker has directed a number of popular non-fiction films such as Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden?, POM Wonderful Presents the Greatest Movie Ever Sold, Mansome and Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope. The director returns to give 1D fans and non-fans alike a glimpse into one of the biggest pop sensations in the world with One Direction: This Is Us, debuting in theaters August 30. I recently had the chance to speak with the director over the phone about this project, where he followed the group One Direction (Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson) on and off the stage, and everywhere in between. Take a look at what he had to say.

I loved your Comic-Con documentary, having gone for the past few years now. That sort of fandom is vastly different from the 1D phenomenon. Did that experience prepare you for this at all?

Morgan Spurlock Developing ‘Erin Brockovich’-Styled Film

http://movieweb.com/person/morgan-spurlock/ It looks like Super Size Me writer-director Morgan Spurlock is getting into non-documentary feature-length films and has an Erin Brockovich-styled film already in the works, he announced to USA Today.

Morgan Spurlock said:"I would love to. There's a couple movies that I'm attached to right now. It took a long time to find something that I liked. There's a film I'm attached to at Leonardo DiCaprio's company right now that's very Erin Brockovich-ish, which is great. I wanted to find something that was smart, that I thought had a little teeth to it. Wasn't just some kind of fluffy ... Like, after Super Size Me came out, I got sent so many amazingly terrible scripts. They were like, "Super Size Me is hilarious! We should send him some comedies!" So I got sent some really bad comedies. I got sent a Revenge of the Nerds remake. ... I got, like, a Deuce Bigelow movie.
