If you hated the news of Ben Affleck being cast in Zack Snyder‘s sequel to Man of Steel, you’ll probably blow a gasket for real with this item. Justin Bieber added a new photo to his Instagram feed tonight, in which he shows off his own copy of the Batman vs. Superman script — or a fairly well-made fake that looks like it bears his name. Making things weirder, his only caption was “#robin ??”
This is some real trolling — Bieber is perhaps big enough to get his hands on the script, but he’s rich enough to pay someone to make a good fake. Or maybe just have it handed to him, to as Bieber had tweeted earlier “Off to do something funny… or die.” So everyone can probably relax and enjoy the weekend, and return to ignoring Bieber.

In Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Hermione Granger had so much work to do she used a device called a “Time Turner,” enabling her to be in multiple places at one time. It’s quite possible Mark Wahlberg has one of these devices. With the sheer amount of films he’s currently developing, a Time Turner seems as logical an explanation as any. By our count the Oscar-nominated, former leader of the Funky Bunch is currently working on, or is attached to, at least 10 films.
Throw another project on the top of the pile. Wahlberg just revealed that he’s developing a basketball film with music mega star Justin Bieber. Read his quotes and more about the film after the jump. Read More »

When the positive reviews of Justin Bieber Never Say Never began to pour in last week, it probably caught most of us by surprise. And when the movie almost took the box office crown from an Adam Sandler romantic comedy, on Valentine’s weekend no less, the 3D documentary pretty much cemented itself as a must-see for anyone who fancies themselves a pop culture guru.
Paramount must also feel the film is creating a unique buzz among moviegoers because they’re going to try something sort of radical to squeeze a few more dollars out of it. They’re pushing director Jon Chu to cut a new version of Never Say Never to release while the movie is still in theaters. However, there’s no guarantee it’s going to happen.
