No, it isn’t a remake of ‘The Odd Couple.’

Deadline is reporting that Mark Wahlberg and Justin Bieber may team on an upcoming movie about street basketball, in which the 17-year-old Bieber would make his dramatic big-screen debut.

Wahlberg gave a few more details about the movie to Vulture, saying it will be “more of a drama … kind of like a reluctant mentor in an inner-city environment. You know, I don’t want to say.”

The pairing of Wahlberg and Bieber would be especially fitting, considering Wahlberg made a successful leap from hip-hop to movies, earning two Oscar nominations along the way.

And Paramount needn’t worry about getting people to see it. Bieber’s concert movie, ‘Never Say Never,’ has already grossed over $72 million since its theatrical release in February.
