Justin Bieber film loses director

August 5th, 2010

David Guggenheim has pulled out of directing the forthcoming Justin Bieber movie.

The Oscar-winning filmmaker had been due to helm the biopic - which plans to incorporate concert footage from a forthcoming show - of the teenage singing sensation but has now dropped out due to his commitments promoting his latest movie 'Waiting for Superman'.

News of David's departure comes just two days after the project was announced.

Speaking about the film, Justin posted on twitter: "Next Valentine's we r coming with a major 3D movie telling the story with an Oscar winning director and also filming the tour at MSG in NYC!!

"This is so sick!! Gonna come out in theaters worldwide Valentine's 2011!!! I'm taking this thing worldwide thanks to u all!! Hyped!! (sic)"

The 16-year-old star has yet to comment on the movie's current status, though it is believed studio Paramount are already interviewing replacement directors.
