EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: EDIT CONTAINS PROFANITIES EDITORS PLEASE NOTE: ROUGH CUT - NO NARRATION STORY: The world premiere of 'One Direction: This is Us' in London on Tuesday (August 20) saw thousands of screaming fans greet the boyband in scenes not dissimilar from Beatle-mania. However, one man who may have been overlooked by the fans was the director of the movie, Morgan Spurlock, best known for his Oscar nominated documentary "Super Size Me". Spurlock made his name from his humorous take on corporations, but in 'One Direction: This is Us' he follows the boyband from their beginnings through to their sell-out world tours, covering their style, their dance moves (or lack of), and what they get up to on their travels. When he was announced as being at the helm on the One Direction documentary project, there were a few raised eyebrows in the movie industry but the director explains that he never had any doubts about getting on board, and he retained full editorial control in the production. Now that his current journey with One Direction is almost over, Morgan Spurlock has a new project he wants to work on. "The goal is to come out of this film and start doing a narrative film - knock on wood!" he said. "One Direction: This is Us" goes on release in the UK on August 29th.
