Mark Wahlberg: Justin Bieber’s Basketball Movie still in the Writing Process

Mark Wahlberg told MTV News Sunday that while his basketball movie with Justin Bieber has not officially been green-lit yet, the story writing is already in full swing.

Wahlberg told MTV:

“We’re waiting for the script. Every time I see [Bieber] or Scooter [Braun], I have to explain to them that it’s a bit of a process having the script written.”

Wahlberg emphasized that they want to make sure that the script is as good as it can be before they move forward into production.

“It certainly [has to be] something that’s good enough to go and have green-lit and make right away, but I think it will be well worth the wait.”

From what Wahlberg and Bieber have said about the film, they’re developing a basketball movie in the vein of “The Color of Money” in which Wahlberg will play a weathered baller who takes a younger player (Bieber) under his wing.
