Blue Man Group and producer Charlotte Huggins have set director David Russo to take the helm of the yet-to-be-titled Blue Man Group movie.

According to Variety, the Imax 3D feature will be scripted by Lisa Robinson.

The film will be the first to star the Blue Man Group, which has been seen onstage in hundreds of cities around the world and in commercials. The original Blue Men -- Chris Wink, Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman -- will star.

Russo said the comedy will be about "the Blue Men entering the brain of a socially and creatively congested person and observing his neural patterns and his habitual brain functions and memory and altering it in a way that helps him bring his inside life outside."

Visual development on the pic is under way and will continue for several months. Production is scheduled for the first quarter of 2010 for a release in early 2011.

The film will eschew the new Imax screens in multiplexes in favor of traditional Imax venues such as museums and science centers.

"We have to entertain with the science being solid," Russo said. "That's very important to me, having come from that sphere."

The Blue Men, who have made five albums, are also scoring the pic.
