The 'Baby' star's planned sports film with the Hollywood star will be "worth the wait" according to the actor.

Justin Bieber and Mark Wahlberg's planned basketball movie is still on the cards and just waiting on an appropriate script according to the Hollywood actor.

The 'Never Say Never' star and the Max Payne actor have spoken about the project in the past with Mark saying it will be "worth the wait".

Speaking to MTV News he said: "We're waiting for the script. Every time I see [Bieber] or Scooter [Braun], I have to explain to them that it's a bit of a process having the script written.

"It certainly [has to be] something that's good enough to go and have green-lit and make right away. But I think it will be well worth the wait."

The actor said he was drawn to the film because he liked the Canadian pop stars realism.

"I see the guy and spent time with him, and you see what he does and how he does it, and then you actually have a conversation with him, and it's there," he added.

Meanwhile, Mark Wahlberg is rumoured to be wanting to work with The Wanted on the movie adaptation of the TV series Entourage.
