In the film, Justin Bieber 22, would reportedly play a young, hopeful soccer player who gets discovered overnight and quickly becomes a sensation, according to The Mirror. Besides Cristiano Ronaldo, 31, a slew of other famous footballers are also expected to make cameos.
The movie is allegedly expected to start filming in March 2017, which gives the Biebs plenty of time to wrap up his Purpose tour, which ends this fall, before getting into this new venture. “The film is well into the pre-production stages and the hope is that Bieber will sign on in the coming weeks,” a source told The Mirror. “It is a great opportunity for him and could be one of the biggest films of 2017 if all of his fans and the fans of Ronaldo go to the cinema.”
