One Direction Movie 'This is Us' is Not Scripted, Band Insists Ahead of August Release Date [TRAILER]

The five band members of One Direction insisted that they did not script a single line in their upcoming 3-D documentary This Is Us, set to release in August.
The band filmed the movie while on tour, at home and as they returned to reminiscence over old part-time jobs, according to Mirror. Director Morgan Spurlock followed them around and captured their most intimate moments as a group.
Louis Tomlinson said everything that will be shown in the movie is genuine and that the band is acting "naturally" in the footage.
"No, nothing at all was scripted. You know if we are asked the question, we just answer naturally," he said. "Because I think that's the most important part, that we show people who we are. And you know, to do that we can't have anything scripted. So it's all a reality."
Speaking to Total Film, Zayn Malik said he and his bandmates have "total control" of the project.
Harry Styles confessed letting the cameras into their lives was "scary," but said at the official press conference for their world stadium tour that the film is a unique look into the lives of One Direction's five singers.
"On twitter you only have 140 characters, you can't get personality across in ten minute interviews. It's going to be a lot more of how we interact and how we're chilled out in the dressing room and it will be nice to see us as we are," Styles said.
Niall Horan said earlier in the year that the film is "going to be access all areas," revealing that the band was even filmed in the bathroom.
This is Us will be released in theaters in the U.K. on Aug. 29 and in the U.S. on Aug. 30. A trailer for the film was released in April, showing the United Kingdom natives give camera confessionals, sign autographs for screaming fans, walk around on stage, and how they live their lives while on the road. Spurlock said in April there have been "more shirtless moments than you can imagine" in the film and added: "Now how many of those make it in to the final film, we'll have to wait and see."
