Justin Bieber is going straight from CSI to the big screen opposite Mark Wahlberg!
Mark told New York Magazine this week, “Justin Bieber and I are going to do a movie together.”
“Well, we’re putting it together. Yeah,” he said. “We’re doing it at Paramount. We pitched them the idea and, you know, we’re talking about doing it.”
And Justin is totally on board!
“He loves the idea,” Mark explained. “He’s been sending me video, he sent me a video of himself, and, yeah, I think he’s really talented.”
What type of movie is it?
“More of a drama. It’s interesting, right? You want to know,” he said. “They’ll probably announce it. They may announce it fairly soon … kind of like a reluctant mentor in an inner-city environment. You know, I don’t want to say.”
But according to Deadline Hollywood, the drama explores street basketball and “the tone of the project is described as The Color of Money meets The Karate Kid, and it came out of Wahlberg and [Stephen] Levinson seeing Bieber play ball in February during a celebrity game held during NBA All-Star Game weekend.”
Do you think a Justin and Mark movie is a good idea?
