Mark Wahlberg, fresh off his Oscar-nominated performance in The Fighter, is teaming up with Canadian pop star Justin Bieber for a new movie project at Paramount. Here's what Mark Wahlberg had to say about working with Justin Bieber.
"Yeah, well, we're putting it together. Yeah, we're doing it at Paramount. We pitched them the idea, and we talked to him about doing it and he loved the idea. He sent me a video of himself and yeah, I think he's really talented."
When asked if it would be a drama or comedy, Mark Wahlberg revealed it will center around mentoring in an inner-city environment.
"More of a drama. It's interesting, right? You want to know. They'll probably announce it. They may announce it fairly soon ... kind of like a reluctant mentor in an inner-city environment. You know, I don't want to say."
We reported last month that Justin Bieber is in talks to star in the comedy What Would Kenny Do? alongside Ashton Kutcher, although it isn't known if both actors have officially signed onto that project yet.
