Justin Bieber movie to be extended

February 22nd, 2011

A director's cut of 'Justin Bieber: Never Say Never 3D' is to be released for a limited time.

The extended version of the movie - a documentary about the 16-year-old singing sensation - will be available for a one-week period in cinemas across the US and Canada from Friday (25.02.11) and will included 40 minutes of extra footage.

Director Jon M. Chu said in a statement: "I realised I had an embarrassment of riches when I was I in the cutting room. This cut allows me to retain some of the best scenes from the original movie, while incorporating previously unseen footage and new material I shot during our extensive promotional tour on behalf of the movie. Justin's dedication to his fan base is unwavering and I was inspired as a filmmaker to attempt to provide them a unique experience that showed even more of his world."

Adam Goodman, President of Paramount Film Group, added: "It is a testament to the professionalism and tenacity of Jon and the production team for turning around this new version of 'Justin Bieber: Never Say Never 3D' director's fan cut in only a few months, giving fans an even deeper look into Justin's life."
