NEW YORK (AP) - A “fan cut” of the documentary “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” will be released Friday.

Paramount announced Monday that director Jon M. Chu has re-edited the Bieber concert film based on fan suggestions. The studio says the new 115-minute cut includes 40 minutes of new footage.

Chu followed Bieber for 10 days on a recent concert tour. He said he had an “embarrassment of riches” in leftover footage and sought out suggestions from Bieber fans on Twitter and Facebook.

“Never Say Never” has earned $51.4 million at the domestic box office since being release Feb. 11. The new edit allows Paramount to further capitalize on the fanatical fan base of the 16-year-old pop star.

The revamped film will play in 3-D theaters for one week.
