UPDATE: Davis Guggenheim has actually pulled out of this project just a day after it was announced.
Paramount Pictures is developing a 3D Justin Bieber biopic that will hit theaters on February 11, 2011 (Valentine’s Day weekend).
Davis Guggenheim, the Oscar-winning director of An Inconvenient Truth, is negotiating to direct. The film doesn’t have a title, but Bieber will play himself in the film. The movie will include performances from his current concert tour.
Manager Scooter Braun and Island Def Jam chairman L.A. Reid will produce the film.
Bieber himself tweeted the following announcing the project:
