The new Justin Bieber film has only been in theaters a few days, but already the studio is thinking of releasing a different “director’s cut” that could replace the current version while it’s still in theaters, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, earned $29.5 million over the weekend, just $1 million below the top film, the Adam Sandler/Jennifer Aniston movie Just Go With It. In reporting on the plans, the Reporter observed that it “would give Bieber’s rabid girl fan base a reason to go see the movie again.” According to the trade publication, Paramount wants to put the new version, which will only add digital 3D scenes, into theaters by the third weekend, beginning February 25. New York magazine’s website said that Paramount has been considering asking fans to vote online to choose the new songs for the movie.
