Twitter phenomenon and all around annoying putz Justin Bieber is rumored to be in talks to star in a biopic about his rise to fame, so says Hollywoodlife.com. While there is no final script, the site says the 16-year-old pop superstar envisions the project as being similar to rapper Eminem’s 2002 film 8 Mile. The site also has font in bright pink colors so take this news with a grain of salt.
This news matches up with dream Bieber shared with Teen Vogue in April where he talked of developing a movie about how he got discovered. Truth be told, I’d be interested in a movie like that. I’m actually not too sure how he got discovered. One moment he just sort of popped onto my radar like a back zit.
The Buzz: Despite my vague curiosity about Justin Bieber’s origins (I have a feeling he was bit by a radioactive chihuahua), I can think of a hundred other musician I’d rather see a biopic of over Bieber. Hell, I’d rather see a biopic on the Numa Numa or Star Wars kids over Bieber. What say we hold back plans to produce a story on his life until he actually does something interesting with it — like spend it spiraling down the drain thanks to an escalating addiction to painkillers and furry porn.
