Is Justin Bieber Starring In A Remake Of Mark Wahlberg's 'Fear'?

Is Justin Bieber Starring In A Remake Of Mark Wahlberg's 'Fear'?

Can you imagine Justin taking on this extremely adult — not to mention Oscar-guaranteed — role? Let’s discuss.

Let me begin by saying I doubt this rumor is true — but oh, how I wish it was. A source tells MovieWeb that Justin Bieber is obsessed with the 1996 horror masterpiece Fear, originally starring Mark Wahlberg, and is interested in starring in a remake. For those of you unfamiliar with the film, Mark’s character pleasures his girlfriend (Reese Witherspoon) on a rollercoaster, carves her name into his chest, then beheads her beloved family dog. In that order. Oh, there’s also a graphic rape scene thrown somewhere in there.

So is it totally crazy to think that Justin would star in an updated version of Fear?

Of course it is. But hey, it’s not the most damaging Justin rumor I’ve ever heard — that honor goes to Mariah “He Wouldn’t Let Me Use A Condom” Yeater — so I’m just going to pretend it’s a possibility.

If you think about it, Justin and teen-Mark’s career histories are actually pretty similar: They both rap, they both act, and they both have a penchant for posing in their undies. In fact, the only thing separating Justin from a young Marky Mark is the absence of that ever-elusive third nipple.

At least, that we know of.

So what do you think? Is a Fear remake exactly what Justin needs to kick-start his movie career, or would it be big-screen suicide of Crossroads proportions? Check out the original movie’s 1996 trailer below, then meet me in the comments section!

Is this a joke? They are going to remake this R rated movie Fear with Justin Bieber? So we are going to get to see a remake of the Mark Wahlberg character now played by Bieber in the infamous rollercoaster scene where his co-star gets fingered? This is just dumb.

I found out about this monstrosity this very morning, January 24, 2012, over the radio. As soon as I heard that Justin Bieber is wanting the rights to the film Fear and wanting to cast in it as lead character David McCall I about laughed so hard it scared the people around me. My instant thoughts were: one Justin is not serious enough for the roll; two is not buff enough, and three he is a child and still has baby fat on his face.
Personally I believe he hasn’t fully accomplished the music world. He has only the hearts of preteens and peppy know nothing girls. See Mark had success in the modeling, then following in music (which we must admit that sex appeal played a part), and finally movies. See he went and conquered one then if anything had a fall back, but he never needed to resort to that. That fool can’t compare his self to Mark Wahlberg.
Justin cannot play the part point blank! He is a boy and that role is for a man; someone that is rough and cut that is a boyfriend/ want to do bad things with secret psycho. Justin is not Mark. Repeats and remakes do not always work out.

People are so unoriginal that they resort to remaking movies and repeating/ following others paths instead of creating their own.

I’m sorry I hope he doesn’t play in this movie. It will honestly kill the original. Of all people justin bieber he’s still in a kid and no comparission to mark whalberg in that movie.

I’m thinking they could swap the graphic rape scene for, like, a musical number.

If you cut out certain aspects of the movie. It will no longer be the movie it was ment to be. The original. And a Musical? Fear is not a song and dance movie. That will alter the essence of the movie.

This idea is absolutely ridiculous. He doesn’t look.near mature enough. Why is everyone so obsessed with remarking movies that are great as they are?! Are people so unoriginal that they can’t come up with fresh ideas????

i think he should focous in his music because if the film is bad he will spent a lot of time of anything and if the film is good he will be forgot beacause to make a film it takes one year and one year without the music of bieber is the end of the world! well …only for the beliebers

One year without his music would be the salvation of music. I’d put that little puss and Nicki minaj on a boat, send it out into the ocean and blow it the fuck up

The only thing separating Justin from a young Marky Mark is the lack of talent! Justin can’t act god damn it!

Honestly i think Fear should be left alone and not make a remake. Fear isnt a remakeable movie and should be left rated R. And justin has a clean image i dont think playing marks charecter is a good idea. Justin even said he wouldnt try anything sexual.

HaHA First!!!
And i would so go see this movie if he did the reamke but i want it to stay Rated-R the Biebs is going to be legal soon the big 18 so he could do it and i think he could handle the part.. maybe needs to beef up a bit Justin has a thin muscular body he just needs to get lil bigger but other then that i think he should do it he needs to gain an older more mature fans and i think its time for his underage fans to step up and be bad and try to watch his R-rated movie LOL Even crazier if they casted Selena to be nicloe ….

Yes to all of this. From your astute analysis of the plot, I can tell that you too are a “Fear” enthusiast.

You know what would be even crazier??? Casting justine bieber to play any role that Mark Wahlberg has played. Tell him to stick to singing like a birch and equally looking like one
