Mark Wahlberg Talks About His Movie With Justin Bieber

August 12, 2012 • By

Mark Wahlberg spoke with E! Online about his movie with Justin Bieber. The movie has been in the works for a while, but it’s still not quite ready to go into production yet!

We got a first draft. They did an edit on the script and got to make some changes and do a little bit of rewrite and polish but I’ve been in contact with [Justin's] managers and the studio a lot. We just want to make it great and we’re getting there. I think of Paul Newman and Tom Cruise in The Color of Money but in the world of inner city basketball. I just think personally we have a great idea. He’s a great athlete…he’s focused and he wants to have success in the movie world and acting as well. He’s focused and patient about finding the right particular part, working with the right people and I think he’d do a great job. I think we have good chemistry and like I said he’s right for this particular part and it’s an idea we’ve had for a while.

We can’t wait to learn more about Justin and Mark’s movie! What are your thoughts on the film so far?
