Hey, remember that Justin Bieber basketball drama that Mark Wahlberg was supposed to co-star in? We do, too. Whatever happened to that project? Well, according to Wahlberg himself, it hasn’t gone away. The “Ted” star spoke with MTV News recently and addressed his plans for the Bieber movie, saying that he’s seen “115 pages” of a script but is waiting to ship it off to the pop star’s camp until they get it juuust right.
“I sent [Bieber’s manager] Scooter [Braun] a text … The last time I talked to him, I said, ’Hey, I need Justin to do me a favor.’ He goes, ’Not without the script.’ So, it’s a process,” said Wahlberg. “Cutting those albums and doing those videos is easy, building a movie career is a difficult thing.”
