Seen here grippin’ his dang-a-lang cuz Justin Bieber is the streets, the eponymous (I might be using that wrong.) maple wunderkind supposedly wants to remake Fear because it launched Mark Wahlberg from just another Southie dancing in his underwear to that dude who finger-banged Reese Witherspoon on a rollercoaster thus possessing all the tools necessary to fight international terrorism. Via Movieweb who I never heard of before this story so just assume none of it’s true because it’s way too hilarious:
Justin Bieber is said to be eyeing the role in a proposed remake, hoping that it will give his image and career the same edge it gave Mark Wahlberg back in 1996, a time when most thought of the actor as a one hit wonder who would quietly disappear. Mark Wahlberg was 25 at the time he made Fear. Justin Bieber will turn 18 this March.
It is believed that Justin Bieber will pursue the rights to remaking Fear, using the film as his launching board into feature film acting. Though, its being speculated that this new Fear will most likely be tamed down for a PG-13 rating, and that it will closely resemble the thrillers and remakes currently being produced by Sony’s Screen Gems division.
So basically Justin Bieber wants to star in a movie where his “bad boy” character sometimes plays video games before doing his homework, and instead of raping Alyssa Milano, he tells a girl’s dad he’s going to hold her hand at the movies if that’s alright with him. Jesus, they were right. This is edgy material for him.
