Current Prince Of Pop Justin Bieber Has His Own ‘8 Mile’ Style Biopic On The Way

Reading that headline you’re probably feeling the exact same way that everyone else is: that this has to be a joke. The Onion must be involved somewhere, right? Wrong. This looks like it’s as true as true can be. And that means we’re all doomed.

When you think “biopic” you usually think of someone like Ray Charles or Abraham Lincoln or something along those lines. We don’t live in the double-aughts anymore, however, and apparently anyone is able to get their very own biopic these days. This is the case with young Justin Bieber, the unfathomably popular singer/rapper/something or other that has inexplicably taken over the planet’s pre-tween female species. Whatever voice-cracking subtleties the 16-year-old speaks, these girls go nut-job crazy, and this apparently warrants the less-than-two-decade-old life story we need so badly.

According to Hollywood Life, Bieber has been wanting to make a movie for a while and a script has been in the works for a while now. The idea is that this new movie will tell Bieber’s story in the same vein as Eminem’s own popular life story, 8 Mile. The only problem there is that Eminem had a much more compelling and much more dramatic life story to tell while Bieber’s is relatively uneventful. How much can come from sixteen short years in Canada? You could tell the story of any professional hockey player coming out of Canada and it’d probably be more compelling.

In case you’re not aware, Bieber became a web sensation by posting videos of himself performing on YouTube. For some reason, he caught the attention of big names in music like Usher and Justin Timberlake who fought to sign the the future star.

Oh, and let’s not forget the fact that baby Bieber will be playing himself in this movie! I can’t believe I just wrote about this. Where are the hidden cameras?

  1. i’m not trying to be rude, but what’s wrong with you ? Justin Bieber has a lot more of compelling life than you will ever have.

  2. Justin Bieber is amazing. You have A LOT to learn about his story before you go and make judgements.

  3. haha what the hell is that ? that article is totally biased . which isnt a good thing?,. && also he has more of a life than someone who writes online articles for geeksofdoom.com

  4. Jesus, I got served.

    There’s no doubt Bieber has a better story than I, but I’m also not working on my own biopic here, folks.

    I’m sure he’s a good kid and all, but the point is that you need to put your time in before making a biopic. You don’t all think the story of his life might be a little more compelling with 30-40 more years added on? You don’t usually make sequels to biopics.

    I’m the farthest thing from a Bieber fan that there is, but it is not I who is biased if you actually think this is a good idea. He could go off and do plenty of normal movies and it’d be what it is, but a biopic is just silly.

    And damnit Mom, I told you stop trying to hurt my feelings on the internet.

  6. For those of you who write in defense of Justin Bieber I’ve noticed a similar theme in each of your responses. That he, Justin Bieber that is, has a more compelling life than the writer of this article ever will. You then go on to say that he is entirely biased, yet aren’t your dramatically emotional responses that The Movie God has an uninteresting life slightly biased? Your Mom even goes so far to specify the Movie Gods explicit occupation, Justin Bieber’s life may be more interesting than someone who writes for geeksofdoom but can it be said that the writer’s life is more interesting than the readers? Perhaps, I’m not making a judgement just an observation. Furthermore, just because Justin Bieber’s life is more “interesting” doesn’t make it more compelling. I just wanted to point out the irony in your responses, and also the irony in mine. Moving on… Here’s my issue with the whole Justin Bieber “8 MIle” film idea. Justin Bieber has a voice, sure, one that’ll probably be lost in 3 or 4 years, beyond that the kid has no talent. His lyrics are empty rhyme schemes, and boring themes. For example, “You know you love me, I know you care Just shout whenever, And I’ll be there You are my love, You are my heart
    And we will never ever-ever be apart.” Truly Brilliant. In this sense, and in almost every other sense I agree with The Movie God’s analysis. Is it biased? Yes. Is the bias justified? Most certainly. Eminem lived a life worthy of the silver screen, I believe. And this comes from someone who owns not a single song from his career. He lived a life of struggle. This is interesting. This is worthy of film. This is why it was made. This also comes from someone who hasn’t scene 8 mile more than once, and who didn’t like it much the first time through. It told a classic rags to riches story, this is what people like to hear about and see, it’s the perfect image of an american dream fulfilled. Justin Bieber, however; is a kid who posted a few videos on youtube that made girls wet. That’s it. Read those lyrics again. Inspirational? No. Moving? Not in the slightest. However, if you were to listen to some of eminems songs, particularly those later in his career, you’ll find music written from a lifetime of struggle, inspired by the things he’s lost, and things he’s won. There’s nothing better than hearing a song written from experience. And there’s nothing worse than hearing a love song from someone who hasn’t graduated high school. That is all. Bring the hate.

  7. Leave MovieGod alone, don’t shoot the messager. This kid will fade out just like everyone else, remember when all the little girls were nuts for Joey Lawarance? It’ll pass. if you like his stuff great if not fine aswell, those who want to hear him sing can those of who would rather take a bath in sulfuric acid don’t have to listen.

  8. Remember when the ladies went crazy for:

    – New Kids on the Block?
    – Joey Lawrence?
    – Corey Feldman?
    – Scott Baio?
    – Ricky Martin?
    – Jamie Walters?
    – Hanson?
    – Aaron Carter? <—- Justin Bieber, this is your future.

    Successful production companies know how to milk money out people, and it's even easier with obsessive fans. They know, as others have already pointed out, that Bieber's career has an expiration date and are pushing this through as fast as possible to cash in while they still can. In 5 years nobody is going to be listening to or talking about Justin Beiber except maybe VH1 while casting the next season of whatever "former star" show they are working on at the point.

    While The Movie God used 8 Mile as an example of a popular biopic, how many others music acts have tried similar vanity projects that have failed miserably? Mariah Carey, Kelly Clarkston/Justin Guirririnirnrnotgonnaworkhereanymore, Vanilla Ice (remember "Cool as Ice?")the Spice Girls, etc.

  9. I knew there were reasonable people out there.

    WordSlinger should get to say “The prosecution rests” and maybe even bang the little hammer.

  10. What’s the name so I can nag my mom 2 c it

  11. First of all, Movie God, I’m sorry to inform you but it looks as if you have a few Bieber fans on your site. Don’t be worried, there are many sites infected with this “situation”. Honestly I never thought GeeksofDoom would be infected, but I guess this is more widespread than I previously imagined.

    Second I agree with the whole idea that they are simply trying to cash in on his fame right now. The kids huge, so why not make a movie and help maximize the profit. With a movie that’ll mean more shirts and posters, but also (if not already) toys, dvds, unlimited amount of interviews from every possible form of media that exist, possible TV show spin-off (shiver), Bollywood version, (starring Justin Bipasha), soundtracks (haha, get it?), sequels, trilogies, epics, volumes…my head almost exploded.

    The only problem with some of the logic here is that you’re assuming Bieber has an expiration date. Don’t get me wrong, I would hope he does, but I fear that it may not be that easy. He’s infected every inch of the internet except for the porn industry. You’ve seen it yourself, he’s got a little of everyone everywhere who are obsessed with him. Not to mention the countless of videos that exist online (536,000 on YouTube for now), countless of meaningless tweets, and all the articles that even mention his name (Google shows 94,900,000). I understand that the internet is a mean bitch and can turn on you at any time, but I think it’s a bit more serious this time around. Plus all the connections he’s making in the music industry alone (and it’s usually Justin Bieber ft. xxxx). Hopefully his fame has a ceiling and once he hits it it’ll calm down to half, but it’s kind of scary to think of his fame + a movie. The money they’re gonna make off of it is going to be insane. I bet there’s gonna be a riot at a few theaters when it’s released. With this kid’s kind of fame it’s not even fair to everyone else. He’s not gonna need a great script to break records, he’s just gonna need a standard formula that will give an okay movie and BAM! he’s a movie star. Hopefully the movie will suck, and he gets a much deserved blow to his ego, because you know that kid is riding high.

    Movie Predictions:
    1. Name of Movie will share Name of Song
    2. Movie will have Cameos from at least 3 big stars
    3. Rated PG
    4. “Bieber gets bullied in school” plot
    5. “Bieber gets told he’ll never make it” plot
    6. “Bieber gets grounded” climax
    7. The last scene will be of Bieber walking out on stage and disappearing into the bright lights.
    8. 20-minute credit roll of Bieber songs.
