The Oscar-winning moviemaker walked away from working with the Canadian pop sensation to concentrate on promoting his new movie, 'Waiting for "Superman" '.
Justin Bieber's upcoming 'movie memoir' has been dealt a setback - the director of the project has quit. Oscar-winner Davis Guggenheim walked away from working with the Canadian pop sensation on Tuesday, August 3 to concentrate on promoting his new movie, "Waiting for "Superman" ".
Paramount Pictures executives are said to have already begun a search for Guggenheim's replacement, reports Deadline.com. The 3D movie, due in theatres in February 2011, will tell the story of Bieber's stellar rise to fame and will also feature concert scenes.
Previously, Justin Bieber was forced to clear up reports he is writing his memoirs - insisting he is "too young" to tell his life story. He wrote on Twitter that the book he is working on is just an illustrated behind-the-scenes look at his tour.
