Mark Wahlberg talks about Basketball-themed Movie with Justin Bieber

Justin Bieber & Mark Wahlberg

Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg surprised movie-fans everywhere when he announced plans to work with Justin Bieber on the big screen. But when MTV News caught up with Wahlberg recently, he explained why he wanted to work with the Biebs on the basketball-themed drama.

“Intuition. I’m pretty intuitive.”
“I see the guy and spent time with him, and you see what he does and how he does it, and then you actually have a conversation with him, and it’s there.”

When MTV News caught up with Wahlberg and Justin earlier this year at the MTV Movie Awards, they opened up a bit more about the in-the-works flick.

“Wait till you see me and Bieber in the flick. Think of, like, ‘The Color of Money.’ So I get this call from Paramount with a story about an old guy and a young guy. I’m like, ‘Cool, let’s get Jack Nicholson. Let’s get Robert De Niro. Let’s get Robert Duvall.’ And they go, ‘What about Garrett Hedlund?’ I’m like, ‘For what?’ “They’re like, ‘For the young guy.’ ”

Justin Bieber expected to be on a film set by sometime in the summer 2012.
