Justin Bieber and Ashton Kutcher are set to team up
The 17-year-old pop star will reportedly play a teenager who meets and is guided through high school by his thirtysomething-year-old self (Ashton) who comes back from the future .
The project - which was developed by Sony with Justin in mind - will be produced by Ashton`s Katalyst Entertainment and Will Smith`s Overbrook Entertainment.
It was slated to begin shooting this year but the `Baby` hitmaker`s touring commitments have reportedly pushed a shooting date back to 2012.
The original script for `What Would Kenny Do?` is an R rated comedy based on a teenager who meets a hologram claiming to be his future self although it is understood this new version would be toned down considerably to cater to Justin`s young fanbase.
`(500) Days of Summer` writers Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber have written the new script.
Ashton has previously spoken about his desire to work on a new version of his prank show `Punk`d` with Justin, calling him a "funny kid".
He said: "I really can`t talk about it because everything`s sort of in process. It`s a possibility that it could be happening. I will not be hosting the show in the future. People were afraid I was going to punk them wherever I went and I`m starting to get invited to stuff again and it`s actually a good thing. `I`ll be involved in some capacity if we do it and there could be a new host but I can`t say a whole lot.
"He`s a nice kid and he`s a funny kid - and people don`t know he`s a funny kid yet-and he`s sneaky. And I like sneaky people."
