Following the boys' announcement it was confirmed that Super Size Me director Morgan Spurlock will be producing and directing the project, while Simon Cowell has admitted he is "delighted" about the project.
"I'm delighted we're making this film and Morgan [Spurlock] is the perfect person to give that access-all-areas, behind the scenes look into what it's like to be One Direction today," Syco boss Simon said in a statement. "What the band have achieved is incredible, they and their fans have made history around the world, and this is for them.
"This is an incredible opportunity and an amazing moment in time for the band," documentary maker Spurlock added. "To capture this journey and share it with audiences around the world will be an epic undertaking that I am proud to be a part of."
