Katy Perry's ready for her close-up: At the Grammys and on the silver screen.
The newly blue-haired powerhouse, who reportedly enrolled in acting classes in hopes of landing a feature film role, is settling for the next best thing: A documentary.
Word is the soon-to-be divorcée is in chats with Paramount Pictures and Imagine Entertainment about starring in a documentary-style concert film all about her mega-pop stardom. The 3D feature would come complete with interviews, confessionals with a touring Perry and tons of performance footage of the "Teenage Dream" beauty in action.
Paramount would use a tried and true model to produce the proposed Katy flick, folks-in-the-know tell Billboard magazine. A similar project starring teen singing sensation Justin Bieber was a huge hit for the studio last winter.
Director Jon M. Chu, the lensman behind 2009′s Step Up 3D, documented life on the road for the pint-sized international superstar. The footage was then cut together for a visually-impressive documentary experience that crushed the box office.
Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, released Feb. 11, 2011, holds the domestic box office record for a concert film, grossing $73 million. The movie was popular enough to warrant a re-release… while still in theaters.
Perry would be just the latest subject for a documentary-style concert film.
Disney's Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour started the trend in 2008. That film grossed $65 million.
The House of Mouse followed with the commercially-unsuccessful Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience the following year. The most recent concert film, Fox's Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, opened in theaters last August.
Michael Jackson's This Is It holds the world record for highest-grossing concert documentary. The film was compiled from weeks of footage from rehearsals for the King of Pop's ill-fated This Is It tour -- which had been set to open at London's O2 Arena just weeks before Jackson's death.
This Is It took in $261.2 million at the international box office.
