Justin Bieber Set to Make Street Basketball Movie with Mark Wahlberg
8:59 am, April 28th, 2011
The drama would be Bieber’s first non-musical leading role.
Wahlberg recently revealed that he and Bieber were planning a movie together, and while he was reluctant to confirm details, a new Deadline report describes the project as a gritty basketball-based drama with a “The Color of Money meets The Karate Kid” tone.
Bieber reportedly impressed Wahlberg with his hoops skills during his MVP performance at the celebrity game over NBA All-Star Weekend.
The still untitled film is expected to be announced shortly.
Wahlberg is coming off the Oscar-winning success of The Fighter, while Bieber’s documentary Never Say Never did enormous business at the box office.
