Mark Wahlberg: Justin Bieber & I Are Doing a Movie Together
The Fighter heavy hitter Mark Wahlberg is the latest A-lister to reveal that he’s working with Justin Bieber, and they’re looking to make some movie magic! The actor confirmed the news with New York Magazine, saying:
“Well, we’re putting it together. Yeah. We’re doing it at Paramount. We pitched them the idea and, you know, we’re talking about doing it. [Bieber] loves the idea. He’s been sending me video, he sent me a video of himself, and, yeah, I think he’s really talented.”
So what’s the movie about?
Mark played coy with the magazine as to the plot of the film but he did confirm no one will be singing or dancing. However, that’s not to say the two couldn’t sing and dance if they wanted. He was Marky Mark after all.
“If I had to, but I’ve, you know, that’s the last resort. I’ve worked really hard to get away from that whole thing, but you never know. I may just end up coming back full circle.”
The Oscar nominee hinted as to what the movie would in fact entail, saying:
“More of a drama. It’s interesting, right? You want to know. 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.”
This isn’t the first we’ve heard of Bieber transitioning into film. It’s also been reported that he’s considering a buddy comedy movie where he would star alongside Ashton Kutcher.
