Mark Wahlberg and Justin Bieber Team Up For Inner-City Drama

Apr 28, 2011

  • Just when you think Mark Wahlberg was turning things around with his Oscar-nominated boxing drama The Fighter comes word that he’s teaming up with the one and (thankfully) only Justin Bieber. Movieweb is reporting that the duo are finalizing a street hoops movie described as The Color of Money meets The Karate Kid (interesting combo) with Wahlberg as an inner-city mentor to Bieber’s wayward teenager. Cuz you know, nothing screams “troubled youth” more than a 17-year-old Canadian pop singer. Unfortunately, this isn’t the first mega-pairing of the Biebs with a famous Hollywood face. Last month, word was out that he would be teaming up with Ashton Kutcher for a buddy comedy titled, What Would Kenny Do? So we have to ask, can the Biebs paired with any actor result in a decent, entertaining movie, or should he just stick to seducing pre-teen girls with his songs that are a notch above Rebecca Black’s talent level? --Derrick Deane
