'Super Size Me' filmmaker Morgan Spurlock will start work on the 3D project in Tokyo, Japan, though he admits the technology isn't popular with everyone.
However, he said: "Once they can crack that nut of having a true 3D experience where you don't have to have those glasses or sit at a certain angle, it will become a conversation again."
The documentary maker - who also admitted he was considered to direct concert films for Justin Bieber and Katy Perry - said he wanted to work with the group because he is fascinated by their meteoric rise to fame since competing on 'The X Factor' UK in 2010.
He said: "These guys have gotten so huge in such a short amount of time - why?
"What makes them more special than any other people?"
Morgan was recently praised by the 'One Thing' hitmakers - comprising Liam Payne, Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Louis Tomlinson and Zayn Malik - as the perfect choice to work on their film.
Niall said: "Morgan works well because ... he did a lot of documentary movies. That's more so what we want our movie to be. It's going to be a concert movie, but with a documentary side than concert side so we wanted to get our personalities across because the fans know us, but we want them to know us deeper."
