Justin Bieber is set to voice the God of Love in a forthcoming animation film.
The ‘What Do You Mean?’ hitmaker has teamed up with Mythos Studios to develop a movie based on Cupid – the God of desire, erotic love, attraction and affection in classical mythology – and it seems his harmonious tones have come in handy as he’s not just creating the blockbuster, he’s also to lend his vocals to the lead character.
Producer Scooter Braun – who is also Justin’s manager – said: “When this project was brought to Justin, he instantly was excited to be a part of it. Fortunately for us, like Cupid, he knows a little bit about love and mischief.”
David Maisel – co-founder of Mythos – added to Variety.com: “Both myself and Scooter have a lifelong love of mythology and we are so excited to partner with Justin to bring the amazing, magical story of Cupid to the world.”
Maisel – who is the founding chairman of Marvel Studios – certainly has experience when it comes to animation as he executive produced ‘The Angry Birds Movie’ along with the first two ‘Iron Man’ films and ‘The Incredible Hulk.’
