Fifth title set for release on holiday
Justin Bieber’s documentary “Believe” has been set for a Christmas release in the U.S.
From Open Road Films, along with SB Films and Dolphin Films, and directed by Jon M. Chu, the movie includes interviews with Bieber and appearances by manager Scooter Braun and musicians Usher Raymond, Rodney Jerkins, Ludacris and Mike Posner.
“Believe” will open against a quarter of Christmas releases — U’s “47 Ronin,” Warner’s sports comedy “Grudge Match,” Fox’s “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” and Paramount’s “Jack Ryan.”
Bieber produced the doc, along with Braun, Raymond, Bill O’Dowd and Garrett Grant.
“I am so excited to be involved in this movie, and so happy to be able to give back to my fans, especially during the holiday season,” Bieber said in a statement. “Jon Chu and my team have done a wonderful job creating a special moment for Beliebers worldwide and I can’t wait till Christmas Day when the movie will be in theaters everywhere.”
IM Global is overseeing international distribution of the film.
Chu also directed another Bieber doc, “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” which Paramount released in 2011.
