The "Somebody to Love" singer added in a statement: "When the idea for a movie first came to us, we knew immediately this was our chance to give something very special back to the all fans who have been a huge source of inspiration and support throughout my entire career thus far. They simply make my dreams come true everyday. I cannot wait to share all the great experiences I've had over the last few years with them."

It's not Bieber's first foray into the dramatic arts: he plays a troubled teen on the upcoming season of CSI.
