The movie collaboration between Mark Wahlberg and Justin Bieber has been talked about for ages, but the film isn't even close to being started. Still, Wahlberg is certain that when he and Justin can get their schedules worked out to shoot the thing, the Bieb will be great -- as long as he changes his hair.
Noting that the movie is set in the world of "street-hustling basketball," Wahlberg tells MTV, "Obviously, [Justin] is a very good athlete. People have seen him on MTV; he can play. But I also really think he can act."
Wahlberg adds, jokingly, "We're just going to have to make him realize that he's playing a character so he can't have the same hairdo."
Unfortunately, fans won't be able to hear Justin's musical talents on screen. When asked if there would be any singing in the film, Wahlberg says, "Absolutely not."
Wahlberg says providing his and Biebs' schedules mesh, he'd like to start shooting the film next spring.
