Or so thinks director Jon Chu, who seems to be already making room for it on his greatest movies of all-time list, right next to the Godfather and Citzen Kane!
Justin Bieber's docu-concert flick is due in theaters next Valentine's Day and though the boy has more buzz around him than a beehive, Jon Chu wants to make sure every living soul on the planet comes to see this movie, even if you aren't a fan of The Biebs.
He excessively talked up the project in an interview, saying:
"[It's] a movie for his fans, a movie for people who don't know him, and we're gonna tell the underdog story of where he came from. Because it's a really fascinating story and it has a lot to do with our sort of digital lifestyle now. He was able to do what corporations try to do now when they use YouTube and they don't even know what to do with it yet. It's a pretty cool story for our time."
Yes, the history books are going to remember 2011 as the year the Bieber changed the face of cinema! Move over Avatar!
You need to simmer down and take it down a notch, bb! You're going to make a bundle off of Bieber Fever. Just be happy with that and relax!
