Paramount and Cirque du Soleil are teaming up to release “Cirque du Soleil Worlds Away” in 3D. James Cameron exec produced; “Shrek” director Andrew Adamson wrote and directed. Cirque’s Jacques Méthé says; “This 3D event brings the spectator beyond what they could see at a show, it takes them on the stage. This unique point of view allows the audience to discover the artistic details of our productions and reveal the human spirit that our artists bring to the audience in their performances. Jim and Andrew have masterfully captured what a Cirque du Soleil 3D experience could offer and Paramount will present it to the world.”
Adamson produced with Aron Warner (through their Strange Weather Productions), Cirque’s Martin Bolduc and Ed Jones and Cary Granat. Reel FX and Cameron Pace Group (whose Vince Pace oversaw 3D stereo production) also produced.
The film will be released later this year.
