Justin Bieber film to be directed by ‘Step Up’ helmer John M. Chu

HollywoodNews.com: John M. Chu, the wunderkind behind the last two “Step Up” sequels will be helming Justin Bieber’s feature film debut.

Chu will be working with the Magical Elves producing team of Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth (“Project Runway,” “Top Chef”).

Paramount Pictures, MTV Films, Insurge Pictures and Island Def Jam Music Group made the joint announcement today.

Scooter Braun, Island Def Jam Music Group Chairman LA Reid, and Grammy winning singer Usher will also produce the currently untitled film. In the film, fans will be given an exclusive VIP backstage look at Bieber’s life on tour.

The film is set to bow on Valentine’s weekend 2011 through Paramount’s new distrib label Insurge Pictures.

“Jon, Jane and Dan are creatively the exact right combination, with each of them bringing a unique and fresh perspective to a movie that will give Justin’s fans an exciting and never-before-seen look into his life and career” said Paramount Film Group President Adam Goodman in a statement.

“When I was approached about doing Justin’s film, I jumped at the opportunity to tell a story with honesty and heart. Most people don’t know that his is a true underdog story, and I hope to tell it in a compelling, genuine way, using all source materials available to convey his tale of becoming an icon for this digital age. This is the story of a new voice continuing the tradition of musicians that defined their generation,” said Director Jon M. Chu.

“Step Up 3D” exceeded Disney’s expectations over the weekend, raking in $15.8 million. Over 80% of the film’s receipts were generated from 3D venues.
