Hot off his hit concert movie, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never, the Canadian teen sensation will join Ashton Kutcher ( No Strings Attached) in an upcoming scripted narrative film.

The comedy, What Would Kenny Do?, tells of a relationship between a 17-year-old and a thirtysomething character to be played by Kutcher.

The story follows a teenager who meets a hologram claiming to be the adult version of himself, who helps guide him through awkward moments in high school.

It will be produced by Kutcher's company, Katalyst Entertainment, and Will Smith's Overbrook Entertainment.
Bieber's acting roles have consisted of playing the character Jason McCann in two episodes of the television show CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, as well as sketches on Saturday Night Live.

Due to Bieber's extensive concert tour schedule, the plan to shoot the film this year has been postponed until 2012.

Bieber's appeal will cover tween and teen fans while Kutcher will attract 20- and 30-something women. Together their Twitter accounts have 15 million followers.

According to the Perez Hilton blog, the two stars have discussed the idea of Bieber rebooting Kutcher's MTV reality prank show Punk'd.
