UH-OH! The Director Of Justin Bieber's Movie Already Quit…Does That Mean It's Going To Suck?

Oscar-winning director David Guggenheim says he’s too busy to make Justin Bieber’s 3-D movie!

Justin Bieber is pretty much the biggest deal since sliced bread – so we were flabbergasted to hear that director David Guggenheim reportedly quit JB’s feature film the day after it was announced.

Are there already problems in Bieber-land?

“I’m being told from all sides that Guggenheim decided he’ll be too busy promoting Waiting For Superman, which Paramount acquired right before Sundance,” reports our sister site Deadline Hollywood’s Mike Fleming.

He added, “But I wonder if Guggenheim might have gotten too much razzing from all of his documentary peers who did spit takes when Deadline revealed Guggenheim was signing on. Paramount has begun interviewing directors for what is being viewed as a good gig, because
Bieber has such a fervent following.”

No kidding! We can’t believe anyone would drop out of any Justin Bieber project right now…he’s box office gold!
