Editor’s Note – This was a part of our April Fool’s Day headlines. If you were fooled, don’t be sorry. These are more plausible in the near future than you think.
With the success of his documentary ‘Never Say Never’ being the biggest concert documentary of all time, Justin Bieber is on a roll when it comes to movies apart from his skyrocketing music career. He’s been sort of selective about his film projects yet, waiting for the best offer that will launch him to stardom. And looks like he may have found one.
Newly surfaced reports suggest that the star is in early talks with Warner Bros. to headline a teen-centric 3-D reboot of the ‘Man with No Name’ trilogy. The classic sphaghetti western trilogy was headlined by Clint Eastwood during the 60′s and remain one of the most influential films of its time, shaping what westerns are in culture today. The trilogy kicks off with ‘A Fistful of Dollars’ and followed by ‘A Few Dollars More’, and ends with ‘The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly’.
Director of the originals Sergio Lione made sure during his life that no one touch his classics for a reboot of this kind, but since his death in 1989, studios have been scrambling to put together a reboot that will cater to the teenage audiences of today and now the films may have finally found the right star. The first film in the series will have young teenagers in the roles of the originals and will aim for a PG rating and a comic tone that lends to the 3-D.
But will Bieber take on the role? His reps suggest that he’s been looking to enter the business with an iconic role and you probably cannot get more iconic than this.
The studio is also looking to package his offscreen girlfriend Selena Gomez for an unspecified female role in order to make it an offer he cannot refuse.
