Justin Bieber, 16, has decided it's time he tell his side of the story – as a memoir.
HarperCollins has announced that “Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story” will be published in October and will reveal The Bieb’s journey to success.
Yet it’s not entirely clear how much writing Bieber will do, since this text is being pegged as an “illustrated memoir," including plenty of photos for the fans.
And since we all know that people these days don’t read like they used to, it looks like there’s even a Bieber movie in the works, and in 3D, no less.
DeadlineHollywood.com reported Monday that Paramount has plans to turn Bieber’s rise to the top into a feature film that would open in theaters right before Valentine’s Day in 2011, with "An Inconvenient Truth's" David Guggenheim in talks to direct. Bieber, of course, will play himself. (Can you imagine trying to get the hair on the actor right if he didn't?)
The teen pop star said on his Twitter page, “Next Valentine's we r coming with a major 3D Movie telling the story with an Oscar winning director,” followed by, “This is so sick!! Gonna come out in theatre's Worldwide Valentine's 2011!!! I'm taking this thing worldwide thanks to u all!!”
