Big Time Rush Announce ‘Big Time Movie’ and Record Release Date
Big-time news for Big Time Rush fans: The group has confirmed a Nov. 21 release date for their new album ‘Elevate,’ and there’s a ‘Big Time Movie’ coming to television in 2012.
‘Elevate‘ is the Nickelodeon stars’ second album and features production from Ryan Tedder, JR Rotem and The-Dream, among others. Featuring the lead single ‘Music Sounds Better With You,’ the album is available now for pre-sale on iTunes.
‘Big Time Movie’ was inspired by the Fab Four and will feature covers of Beatles songs, including ‘Help!,’ ‘A Hard Day’s Night,’ ‘We Can Work It Out’ and ‘Revolution.’ In the film, the boys depart for London for a concert but end up having to team up with spies to save the world. When their bags get switched at the airport, hilarity ensues.
“The cool gadgets, outdoor locations and big stunts give this film a truly cinematic feel and transport Big Time Rush into a larger than life environment,” says Nickelodeon’s President of Original Programming and Development, Marjorie Cohn, in a press release. “It’s a Nickelodeon take on James Bond meets Austin Powers, featuring covers of classic Beatles songs that both kids and their parents can enjoy.”
The film is currently being shot in Vancouver and is being executive produced by show creator Scott Fellows. An air date for the movie will be announced soon.
