Attention Justin Bieber fans (you might want to sit down while reading this, if you haven’t already seen the news on Bieber’s Twitter account): You have an opportunity to be in his new 3-D movie!
That’s right, Justin Bieber and director Jon Chu made the announcement via Twitter on Tuesday (August 24) that they are hosting a 24-hour casting call for all the Beliebers out there to be in their new concert extravaganza. All it takes is a visit to the website BieberFever.com/movie.
When Chu and Bieber made the Twitter-nouncement on Tuesday afternoon, Bieber followed up his initial tweet with an update that fans had already overwhelmed the website’s server. “Sorry u guys crashed the server!!” he tweeted. “Haha. It’s back up now!! Get in MY MOVIE!!! U got less than 24 hours!!”
When MTV News caught up with Chu recently (who also directed “Step-Up 3-D”), he said the Bieber movie will be for everyone — not just his devoted fans.
“[It’s] a movie for his fans, a movie for people who don’t know him, and we’re gonna tell the underdog story of where he came from,” Chu said. “There’s not going to be acted-out scenes and I can’t talk about the rest. It’s not your typical concert film and it’s not going to be a biopic … but it is about his life. I think it’s more of a documentary. We’re going to figure it out as we go.” As for how much of it will be in 3-D, he said, “You’ll have to see it. We’re figuring that out now.”
The Justin Bieber 3-D movie is set to open on Valentine’s Day weekend.
