Media: Waiting For Justin Bieber [Corrected]
Hey, we all gotta pay the rent. Word is that Davis Guggenheim's next (current) project is a biopic of teen hearthrob Justin Bieber scheduled to come out for Valentine's Day 2011 (TheWrap.com via Linda Perlstein). Yes, that's him. Yes, a boy.
Meanhile, the buzz around Waiting For Superman may have already peaked among the blogorati but the official September release will create another, perhaps bigger wave of attention, and then -- crossed fingers -- an Oscar nomination.
What do you think? Credibility problem, or no big deal?
UPDATE: Turns out those Hollywood blogs can't be trusted. Guggenheim was considered / in discussions about doing the film but never signed on. And I need to learn how to spell Bieber correctly. Thanks for the corrections, readers!
