Director Jon Chu chatted with MTV about Justin Bieber‘s 3D movie: ‘Well, we’re working on it right now. We’ve been touring with him, so we’ve been working on it. The movie comes out in five months, so we’re deep in it. It’s been fun to get to know Justin. He’s a really cool guy and we’re gonna make a really fun movie.
[It’s] a movie for his fans, a movie for people who don’t know him, we’re gonna tell the underdog story of where he came from. Because it’s a really fascinating story and it has a lot to do with our sort of digital lifestyle now. He was able to do what corporations try to do now when they use YouTube and they don’t even know what to do with it yet. It’s a pretty cool story for our time.
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.’
How much of it will be in 3D? ‘You’ll have to see it. We’re figuring that out now. Justin isn’t a flash in the pan. He has legitimate talent and I think other artists recognize that.’ Do YOU think the film will be more popular the Miley Cyrus and Jonas Brothers’ movies?
