John Chu steps up to 3D Justin Bieber biopic

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.”
