Remake news is almost never good news, and anonymous Hollywood gossip about remake news is dumbdumb talk that never means anything, but OH MY GOODNESS! This is the best anonymous Hollywood remake gossip that I’ve ever heard in my entire life!!! EVERYBODY LISTEN UP! From Movieweb:
Our source would like to remain anonymous for now, as he is still working next to the singer, but we’ve been told that Bieber has been mulling over a number of feature ideas, and instead of looking to someone like Britney Spears for guidance in this department [Ed. Note: WHY EVER WOULDN'T HE?], he is looking to build off the career model of teeny bopper/rapper-turned-Oscar nominated actor Mark Wahlberg. And while Renaissance Man and The Basketball Diaries came first on his resume, its Marky Mark’s dark R rated thriller Fear that has caught the attention of Justin Bieber.
Justin Bieber is said to be eyeing the role in a proposed remake, hoping that it will give his image and career the same edge it gave Mark Wahlberg back in 1996, a time when most thought of the actor as a one hit wonder who would quietly disappear. Mark Wahlberg was 25 at the time he made Fear. Justin Bieber will turn 18 this March.
Oh my god, I can hardly even imagine how wonderful a Justin Bieber remake of Fear would be. Not only does he have the perfect face and demeanor and voice to take on the role of David McCall, but also–
“LET ME IN THE FUCKING HOUSE!!!!!” -JUSTIN BIEBER. There’s no way he wouldn’t say that in a remake, RIGHT?! He would have to say that! And he would have to be so upset. And ugh, THAT WOULD BE INCREDIBLE. Not to even mention how perfect the idea of a Fear remake is on its own — I could DEFINITELY deal with two Fears existing in the world. Just the best news, all around. Can’t wait until he cuts his teeth on Fear and moves onto remaking Requiem For A Dream, in which he will play every role. Kind of weird how it’s only Monday and we’ve already heard the best rumor news of our whole lives, right? Keep your fingers crossed as hard as you can, everybody! Pretty sure this thing’s LEGIT!
