    For those fans who can never quite get enough of Justin Bieber, there's good news on the horizon.

    Never Say Never, the 3-D documentary about the Canadian pop star, is being re-released with 40 additional minutes of footage, reports the New York Daily News.

    The new edit, dubbed a "Director's Fan Cut," will hit theaters on February 25 and run for one week.

    "I realized I had an embarrassment of riches when I was I in the cutting room," director Jon M. Chu said in a statement. "This cut allows me to retain some of the best scenes from the original movie, while incorporating previously unseen footage and new material I shot during our extensive promotional tour on behalf of the movie."

    22 minutes of the original film have been cut with the addition of the new material, leaving the running time at 115 minutes.

    According to Chu, more footage of Bieber's friends and hometown, along with unseen performances and video taken from fans at the film's premiere, will be in the new version.

    Never Say Never captured the box office title over Valentine's Day weekend - its first in theaters - with a $12.35 million haul and has collected over $50 million since its release.
