New York (USA), Oct. 26 (ShowBizCafe.com) – With the shocking success of ‘Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert’ and ‘Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience,’ Paramount Pictures decided to take the story of the young Canadian singer Justin Bieber to the big screen in a biopic directed by Jon Chu entitled ‘Justin Bieber: Never Say Never 3D’. The film, which premieres on February 11, 2011, Valentine’s Day, had its debut last night at his concert in Los Angeles and now you can see it in the video below.
The trailer begins with images of Justin as a child singing and playing musical instruments, all as part of his daily life. The focus then switches to his beginnings as a star and famous people who helped him along the road to fame. Finally we see testimonies of love from his fans and the songs they all obsessively sing as ‘Baby’ and ‘Somebody to Love’. The film ends with Bieber giving words of encouragement to his audience – “there will be times when people tell you you cannot live your dreams,” says Bieber. “This is what I say: Never say never”
The business of ‘Bieber’ continues to boom all around – I mean he has even signed a deal with publisher Harper Collins to create a memoir on his life and his path to the top of the music industry. This guy has become an economic attraction for film executives and publishers who see enormous potential to make money in a variety of properties.
Initially, the documentary filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (It Might Get Loud, An Inconvenient Truth) was going to make the Bieber project, but looks his fans got on him. Guggenheim left the project after receiving a deluge of criticism via the web by his own fans. Scooter Braun, his manager and LA Reid, chairman of Island Def Jam, will produce the film.
