The 3-D live-action comedy, which is scheduled for a spring 2011 release, stars the group's original cast members: Chris Wink, Phil Stanton and Matt Goldman. "Blue Man Group: Mind Blast" begins pre-production in early 2010. The film, according to press notes, "will follow the bald and blue trio as they travel through a visually stunning 3-D brain, exploring its neural pathways, synapses and gooey brain structures. Music, physical humor and Blue Man antics abound as they make art, collect scientific facts and turn our brains upside down."
The film will be directed by David Russo and executive produced by Barbara Darwall of Blue Man Productions. The original script was written by Lisa Robinson; Charlotte Huggins and Janice Doskey are producers.
In a statement Blue Man Group co-founder Matt Goldman said, "Blue Man Group and National Geographic share a similar passion for curiosity, exploration and discovery. This alignment of values makes the NGCV the perfect distributor for 'Blue Man Group: Mind Blast' — a film that aims to explore the inner workings of the human mind in the same way that National Geographic has long been exploring the workings of our world as a whole."
