Segway enthusiast Justin Bieber has made a deal with Paramount Pictures to star in a 3-D film about himself. Feel bad about life yet? We thought it was a hoax until the Biebs tweeted about it:

Next Valentine’s we r coming with a major 3D Movie telling the story with an Oscar winning director and also filmin the tour at MSG in NYC!!

The yet-to-be-named flick will be directed by Davis Guggenheim, who’s best known for An Inconvenient Truth. We assume the Valentine’s weekend release date is so tween girls around the world can spend February 14 with their imaginary boyfriend while their parents pay for the ticket. 

The movie news follows the announcement Bieber will pen an autobiography with HarperCollins. Justin Bieber: First Step 2 Forever: My Story (kids really need to stop spelling with numbers) is slated for an October 2010 release. Book-loving Bieber fans should get on those pre-orders so they can be the first to speculate about the inevitably crappy movie adaptation.
