Justin Bieber is up for the role of a lifetime — his lifetime! According to Hollywood Life, a script much like Eminem’s 8 Mile is in the works and will focus on the 16-year-old pop singer’s family and the experiences that have shaped him into the star he is today.
Justin was actually the first person to talk about the biopic, telling Teen Vogue in April: “We’re trying to set up a movie for me in the near future — it’s going to be similar to the story of how I got discovered — kinda like my own version of 8 Mile.”
The Canadian sensation has already had his own special on E!, which featured interviews with his family and team of music industry players. Justin’s movie is expected to touch upon similar themes such as his childhood, being raised by a single mom and his rise to stardom using YouTube, Twitter and the Internet to help propel his fame.
Beliebers are going to be all over this movie, if it does end up going into production. Will it star any other real-life celebs that have made a mark on JB’s life? An appearance by Usher or Justin Timberlake would be so sweet. Are you excited for the possibility of a Justin Bieber movie?
