Justin Bieber Biopic Gets New Director
Step Up 3D's Jon M. Chu will now direct the film about Justin's life...
According to Reuters, Step Up 3D director Jon M. Chu has taken on the task of transforming Bieber's rise to fame for the big screen.
In a statement about Justin's film, Chu claimed: “Most people don’t know that his is a true underdog story, and I hope to tell it in a compelling, genuine way, using all source materials available to convey his tale of becoming an icon for this digital age.”
As we previously reported, Oscar-winning director Guggenheim pulled out of the 3D project based on Bieber's life to promote his new documentary Waiting For Superman.
The film, which is said to be an Eminem 8 Mile style biopic is due for release next Valentines Day weekend and will star 16-year old Justin as himself.
