Mark Wahlberg is making a movie with Justin Bieber. He does not appear to be kidding.

The star of “The Fighter” tells New York Magazine’s Vulture that he and the pop sensation pitched the film and plan to make it with backing from Paramount.

What will it be about?

Wahlberg is a little cagey.

“They may announce it fairly soon … kind of like a reluctant mentor in an inner-city environment,” he explains. “You know, I don’t want to say.”

He did confirm there will be no singing or dancing, squashing hopes of a Marky Mark and the Funky Biebs mash-up of “Good Vibrations” with ”Baby.”

Now that this information is spreading online faster than a viral Bieber meme, hopefully Paramount will cough up the details sooner rather than later.
