Davis Guggenheim To Direct The 3D Justin Bieber Biopic
Davis Guggenheim is a director known for making two of the best documentaries of the past decade. The first was An Inconvenient Truth, a film that brought statistics and the urgency of climate change and global warming into public sphere. The second was Waiting For Superman, which exposed the flaws in America's educational system and the efforts being made to remedy them. And that's not even mentioning It Might Get Loud, a rock and roll doc on the history of the electric guitar from the perspectives of three of the best musicians playing today. Now, that same man is wasting his God-given talent on a Justin Bieber biopic.
E!Online is reporting that the director will helm the film based on the 16-year-old Canadian pop singer's life. The rumor of the project began back in late July and will be a fictionalized account in the vein of Eminem's 8 Mile and 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Tryin'. Oh, and it will be in 3D.
I honestly can't understand for the life of me why Guggenheim would sign on to do this movie. The man has earned tremendous respect as a documentary filmmaker and he chooses to make this film. All I can say is that I hope they're paying him an egregious amount of money.
