Blue Man Group Headed To Imax
3D film planned by art-theatre group

20 May 2009  |  Written by Helen O'Hara

Well dip us in paint and throw marshmallows at us! The Blue Man Group are headed to the big big screen, with a 3D Imax comedy film planned and director David Russo lined up to direct the story.

The film will see the azure weirdos "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," said Russo to Variety. The Group's therapeutic methods will almost certainly involve throwing stuff about.

The film's visual development is already underway, with production due to start early next year for release in 2011. It will be the Group's first big-screen appearance, and only the second feature for Russo, who directed this year's Sundance debut The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle. Original Blue Men Chris Wink, Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman will star.

In the meantime, if you can't get to a city where the Blue Man Group is performing, we recommend investing in some Arrested Development boxsets and admiring the subplot that sees Tobias join the Group.
