Paramount Pictures just announced the JUSTIN BIEBER 3D MOVIE is scheduled for wide release on February 11, 2011, because it’s Valentine’s Day weekend. (I can’t report this straight, people.) Step Up 3D helmer Jon Chu is directing the 3D feature film about the teen pop idol and Magical Elves partners Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz are producing with Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun and Island Def Jam chairman L.A. Reid. Chu’s Step Up 3D bombed at the box office this summer, while the Magical Elves won an Emmy for Top Chef. With a release date less than 6 months away, Bieber’s summer concert in Nashville was filmed for behind the scenes footage. Cameras also followed him to the August 31 performance in Madison Square Garden, which was filmed using 3D cameras. The film’s focus is on Bieber’s rags to riches bio, and how his trajectory was fueled by the web.
