Step Up 3D director John Chu has been hired to direct a 3D Justin Bieber biopic. According to reports over 20 directors were in the running for the job before Chu was signed up:
“When I was approached about doing Justin’s film, I jumped at the opportunity to tell a story with honesty and heart,” Chu said.
“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.”
