Pop singing sensation Justin Bieber is apparently going to star in a movie about his life. This concert documentary in 3D is set to release on February 11, 2011, titled Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, which is also the title of one of his songs which was featured in the Karate Kid movie with Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan. Pictures of Justin Bieber and the trailer for this movie have recently been released online and are very popular. The official trailer of this movie on youtube gained a million views in only 3 days.
Originally, this movie was going to be directed by Davis Guggenheim. However, Guggenheim dropped out of the project because he needed to work on promotion for another movie he was working on.
Recent Justin Bieber photos show that the official poster for this movie features Justin in a hoodie with the letter B in rhinestones on his chest. The photo is shot in black and white and features Justin Bieber’s signature colours, grey, white and purple.
The movie will now be directed by Jon Chu, known his work on Step Up 3D and Step Up 2 the Streets. It will be about the early life of Justin Bieber in a small town in Canada, who used to spend his time singing on street corners and playing the guitar and drums in his home. How he was discovered on YouTube and signed his first deal with a major record label, following his rise into stardom, becoming the pop phenomenon he is known for today. The movie will feature clips of home movies of Justin Bieber singing and playing a guitar as a kid and some additional behind-the-scenes footage of his current life as a pop star and clips from the My World tour.
The funding of this movie is said to be from a huge deal that Justin Bieber signed with AEG Live entertainment. The contract requires him to perform in a total of 140 tour events from June to December 2011. Justin Bieber has agreed to sign the contract as long as AEG funds the development of this movie. In other words, Justin can make a movie about anything he wants and it will all be paid for by AEG Live entertainment.
No doubt, with Justin’s huge fanbase, this movie will probably be a hit in cinemas as are his videos on YouTube.
