One Direction: This Is Us: Liam Payne says there could be a sequel to Morgan Spurlock's documentary
Monday 19 August 2013
One Direction star Liam Payne said making the boyband's new film was "nerve-wracking" but there could be a follow-up if it is a hit.
The singer and bandmates Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson were speaking at a press conference in north London ahead of tomorrow's premiere of One Direction: This Is Us.
The film, made by Super Size Me director Morgan Spurlock, follows their life on the road during their rise to worldwide fame.
Payne said: "I think at the moment we just want to see how this one goes to be honest with you.
"It's so nerve-wracking making the film and stuff. I was thinking the other day when we sit in the premiere and everybody is actually watching it on the big screen it's going to be amazing but I don't know, maybe we'll see how this one goes, see if people like it."
Styles said making the film was "really strange" but said at the same time "it kind of didn't make that much of a difference".
He said: "It was kind of just getting on with the day but there was someone in your way when you tried to get out of a door."
The boyband, who were brought together on The X Factor, have topped the charts on both sides of the Atlantic, becoming the first British act to top the Billboard chart with their debut album.
Tomlinson said one advantage of making the film was it helped them remember everything that had happened to them in the last few years.
He said: "Because so much is happening to us you kind of just lose it all.
"It's great just to sit back and watch it back and remember and relive those moments."
Styles said the film would allow fans to learn more about them, saying: "We just want to show what we're about and with social media and stuff there's only so much you can get across in terms of your personality."
Asked why there was no sex or drugs in the film, he joked: "This is a family press conference."
And Tomlinson said: "We like to think we're rock 'n' roll but we're not really."
Styles said they did not cut many scenes from the film, saying it "was more putting in stuff we remembered we really wanted".
But Tomlinson said it was difficult to put everything in because "you've got five people's personalities to get across so its actually quite hard".
Spurlock said fans would enjoy seeing how "normal" the band are.
He said: "There is no air of superiority, there is no air of success that permeates this movie.
"You see five guys who are the same five guys they were three years ago."
