Mark Wahlberg is planning to start work on a new film starring Justin Bieber next year.

The pop star is to team up with the actor for a basketball movie after Mark got an unexpected opportunity to pitch the idea during a recent meeting with a Hollywood studio.

He told chat show host Anderson Cooper: “We were at Paramount pitching a different movie and we had the meeting and I said, 'Hey, by the way what do you think about me and Justin Bieber in a 'Colour of Money'-type of basketball, street hustler movie?'

“They bought it in the room in five seconds. So we developed the script, the studio loves it, [Justin's] camp loves it.”

However, Justin Bieber fans shouldn't get too excited just yet as production will not start until 2014 as both the singer and the actor have outstanding commitments.

Mark said: “He's touring and I'm doing 'Transformers', 'Ted 2' and another movie so we will probably do it next year. If I don't do it, we will do it with him and someone else and I'll produce it.

“I'm the hustler and he's the kid I have to reluctantly mentor because he's a very good basketball player."

He added: “We got the idea when we saw him playing basketball in a celebrity thing, and I play a lot of basketball, so we thought it would make for an interesting movie.

“I think if he's in the right project, I think he could be very good.”
