Justin Bieber's life story will be told in 3-D
Pint-size tween star follows in the footsteps of Eminem, 50 Cent and Prince
Music stars making the transition to the big screen is nothing new. From Frank Sinatra to Elvis to Madonna it's part of the natural progression if a singer is going to transition into an icon. It's extremely rare, however, for such artist to star as himself in a movie based on his own life. That fate now awaits Justin Bieber and in 3-D no less. Cue the screams of millions of teenage girls across the globe.
Joining the likes of Eminem, 50 Cent and Prince, Paramount Pictures has made a deal to turn Bieber's life story into a 3-D biopic. According to Deadline, Davis Guggenheim would direct the feature that would include performances from his current tour. More surprisingly, the film already has a release date of Feb. 11, 2011, a mere six months from now. That doesn't seem to indicate it will be of the critical quality of "Purple Rain," "8 Mile" or even "Get Rich or Die Tryin'."
