Pop star Justin Bieber is reportedly being considered for a negative role in the next installment of the Expendables franchise.
Hollywood actor Sylvester Stallone, who has starred in all three parts of the series, liked the idea of Bieber, 20, playing the villain in the next film, reported the Daily Star.
Stallone, 68, apparently wants to 'freshen up' the series by using younger actors. The star thinks bringing in Bieber would assure the movie's success, given the singer's popularity, a source said.
Expendables star Randy Couture, however, does not think Bieber will suit the character. "Honestly, I just don't see that (singer int he film)," he said but Stallone is reportedly not bothered about his displeasure. Jason Statham is also apparently not happy with the idea.
"Sly is not ruling out having Bieber on board, even though it has unsettled some of his cast mates," the source said.
The third installment of the franchise opened this month to a mixed response from critics and audience alike.
