Louis, Niall, Harry, Liam and Zayn are soon to kick off filming their much-anticipated movie in Japan’s capital city.

One Direction are to begin shooting scenes for their first 3D movie next weekend in Japan after they arrive in Tokyo ready for performances on the 18th and 19th of January.

The film, directed by Supersize Me’s Morgan Spurlock, will mix footage of the band's performances as well as allowing fans to see what the UK boy band are really like.

One Direction’s Niall Horan previously explained: “We wanted to get our personalities across, because the fans know us but we want them to know us deeper.”

The 'Little Things' five-piece hit Camden’s recording studios last week, reuniting all band members after their respective Christmas and New Year breaks.

The ‘Kiss You’ singers recently earned a BRIT nomination for ‘British Group’ and are confirmed to perform at the ceremony at London’s O2 Arena in February.

On hearing the news of their nomination, Harry Styles tweeted: Thank you so much for the Brit nomination... Absolutely amazing! Can't believe we're among those groups. Thank you .xx’

The movie, as yet untitled, is due for release in late August 2013.
