As if Justin Bieber doesn’t already have enough to keep him busy.
The L.A. Times is reporting that he has signed on with Ashton Kutcher for a new movie scheduled to begin shooting in late 2011.
“What would Kenny Do?” will be produced by Kutcher’s own production company, Katalyst Entertainment, and would cast both Bieber and Kutcher in lead roles.
The film is a buddy film that explores the relationship between a 17-year-old boy (Bieber) and his future self at age 30 (Kutcher). The struggling high school kid gets some guidance and life experience from a grown-up version of himself.
It’s not the first time the two A-listers and Twitter icons have tried to team up for a project. The two were in talks last year over Bieber talking the helm of a new “Punked” series but they couldn’t pull it off because of Justin’s tour schedule.
“What Would Kenny Do?” has been on the table for almost a year and it sounds like everybody is just waiting for Bieber’s European tour leg to finish. In fact, Will Smiths production company Overbrook Entertainment has now been attached to the project so we’ll probably see a cameo or two from his son, and Bieber pal, Jaden Smith.
Bieber is no stranger to big screen success as his box-office draw for “Never Say Never” grossed more than $70 million in the United States alone.
We think it will be a smash hit!
