Justin Bieber proved his talents on the basketball court winning the NBA All-Star celebrity MVP over Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen. Now, a movie is being written about his basketball skills.
In June, Bieber revealed he was collaborating with Marky Mark on a basketball movie. Wahlberg will play a veteran baller who takes the up and coming Bieber under his wing. They hope to begin production for the movie this summer.
“It certainly [has to be] something that’s good enough to go and have green-lit and make right away, but I think it will be well worth the wait,” Bieber said.
No stranger to box office success with sports movies, Whalberg won an Academy Award for “The Fighter,” in which Whalberg both starred in and produced. This will be Bieber’s first motion picture despite the successful “Never Say Never”concert film.
