Is this a good idea? MTV is reportedly “finalizing a deal” to bring “Punk’d” back from the dead . . . with Justin Bieber taking over for Ashton Kutcher as the host. Ashton will remain onboard as the executive producer.It sounds like the only hold-up is mapping out how the show’s shooting schedule would work around Justin’s insane life, which is packed with gigs through at least the end of the year.
Assuming a deal is reached, MTV sources say the network would like to launch production as soon as possible, so that the new “Punk’d” could premiere sometime next year.
If Justin’s version is the same as Ashton’s, Justin would be there for some of the pranks, at least for the climactic reveal while just introducing others. What do you think?
