Paramount has finally announced a project we all knew was doomed to happen eventually - not so soon though! A Justin Bieber movie, in 3D, from director Davis Guggenheim, who helmed An Inconvenient Truth and Waiting for 'Superman'" (okay, we didn't suspect that was going to be part of the bargain). The untitled film has a February 11, 2011 release date - one day before my birthday, as it happens. I'd prefer a tie, thanks.
If you're thinking, "How could Davis Guggenheim, an Oscar-winner, relegate himself to this nonsense?", you should know that the guy has also helmed plenty of trashy fare as well, like the pilot episode of the new "Melrose Place" and the faux-risqué 2000 film Gossip. Plus, this will most likely earn him more money than a hundred documentaries would. And people like money - just ask a person you know.
If you were holding out hope that this might be the work of an editor with a horrendous sense of humor, Bieber himself took to Twitter to confirm the announcement, tweeting: "Next Valentine's we r coming with a major 3D Movie telling the story with an Oscar winning director and also filmin the tour at MSG in NYC!!"
Yes, it will indeed be a major 3D Movie telling the story... and that story is Bieber's life story, which doesn't have many miles on it considering he's only 16, but I suppose it will be enough for screaming girls who want to spend 90 minutes with Bieber's giant face in front of them.
