Are Mark Wahlberg And Justin Bieber Making A Movie Together?

Mark Wahlberg told New York Magazine’s Vulture on Tuesday that he is in talks with Justin Bieber to do a movie together.


According to The Hollywood Reporter, Wahlberg pitched the idea to studio execs over at Paramount, who liked what they heard and are forging ahead with both camps.  Wahblerg told Vulture:

“We’re putting it together. … We’re doing it at Paramount. We pitched them the idea and, you know, we’re talking about doing it,” Wahlberg said. “He loves the idea. He’s been sending me video, he sent me a video of himself, and, yeah, I think he’s really talented.”

Though Wahlberg didn’t go into much detail, he did say that the film would be a drama.  While he didn’t get into specifics, Wahlberg did say that “They [Paramount] may announce it fairly soon … kind of like a reluctant mentor in an inner-city environment. You know, I don’t want to say.”

So, it’s not going to be a cross between The Fighter and Never Say Never?  Why do I picture Bieber as a little thug with a potty mouth?  We’d love to know what the Biebs thinks of this new collaboration.  He was too busy singing his little heart out at Acer Arena in Sydney, Australia today.
