Is Justin Bieber giving up his music career to join the NBA? Beliebers, you may breathe a sign of relief. Turns out, Justin Bieber is currently working on a basketball movie with Mark Wahlberg.
The two have been working on a script that stars Justin as a basketball player. No further information about the plot has been released because the script is only in its first draft. Mark Wahlberg hopes this movie will be out sometime next year.
The Biebs has had previous acting experience, appearing in an episode of CSI: CRIME SCENE INVESTIGATION. He was also a baby alien in MEN IN BLACK 3, so shooting the basketball movie won’t be an entirely new experience for him.
As well as being a good singer, he’s also a good basketball player, according to Wahlberg in a recent interview with E! The pressure is on for this film. Not only does Justin have to give a good performance, but he’ll also have to shoot some three pointers!
Are you excited for Justin Bieber’s new film? What are your thoughts on singers who become actors?
