London: Teen pop star Justin Bieber`s manager has confirmed that he is in talks to star in Will Smith`s new movie.

Scooter Braun confirms the 16-year-old is working on a feature film produced by Smith and his company, Overbrook.

"The film is a fictional piece that may have some similarities to Bieber`s life," contactmusic.com quoted Braun as saying.

Bieber expressed his interest in acting when he met Will Smith while recording ‘Never Say Never’ - the theme song for ‘The Karate Kid’ which featured his son Jaden Smith.

It is expected to go on floors next year.
