Not much is known about Allen’s upcoming untitled drama, but according to Variety, the film is set in New York City in the late 1950s. Actors Juno Temple (Vinyl), Kate Winslet (Steve Jobs), and Jim Belushi (Twin Peaks) are set to star alongside Timberlake.
Though the film isn’t set to hit theaters until 2017, Timberlake fans won’t have to wait long to see the multifaceted star on the big screen. The singer/actor appeared in this year’s star-studded Andy Samberg comedy, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping. He also lends his voice to this November’s colorful CGI family adventure, Trolls, which follows the characters of Poppy (Pitch Perfect’s Anna Kendrick) and Branch (Timberlake) as they embark on a quest to save the happy-go-lucky Trolls from the pessimistic Bergens.
Timberlake also composed original music for the Trolls soundtrack, and you can even hear the singer’s latest single, “Can’t Stop The Feeling,” kick in toward the second-half of the movie’s trailer.
All in all, it looks as though 2016 is shaping up to be a busy year for Justin Timberlake!
