Mark said: "Justin Bieber and I are going to do a movie together. We're putting it together… 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."
Wahlberg will also star in the as-yet-untitled flick, which is described as The Colour Of Money meets The Karate Kid. Movies studios Paramount are on board after being blown away by the success of Justin’s tour documentary Never Say Never, which cost $13m and went on to make nearly $100m at the box office.
Justin has been open about his ambitions to pursue a movie career after he had good reviews for his role as troubled teen Jason McCann in US crime series CSI. “I definitely want to do more acting, and further my career in that area, that's something I would love to do,” he said recently.
