Page Six is reporting that Justin Bieber was offered the role of a young pop star in the upcoming film Uber Girl, but flatly refused when he saw that it would call for a love scene WITH ANOTHER DUDE. Ewwwwww.
“He won’t take the part unless the sex scene with him and one of the male backup dancers is taken out of the final script,” explained co-writer Pete O’Neill.
Of course, playing gay (over and over again) has catapulted Nick Jonas into the celebrity stratosphere. Perhaps Justin ought to rethink his anti-gay stance.
The coming-of-age story for millennials is represented by Lighthouse Entertainment LA with Cinema Epoch looking for a major studio to co-produce and hoping to cast Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Kiernan Shipka (Sally Draper in “Mad Men”).
