Justin Timberlake is continuing his acting career in a big way: he, as well as Vinyl star Juno Temple, have joined Kate Winslet and Jim Belushi in Woody Allen’s untitled new project.
Very little about the new film has been revealed by the notoriously secretive (and let us never forget, controversial) writer-director Allen, except that filming will begin in the fall.
The untitled project is said to be a drama set in New York City in the late 1950s. Allen is producing with Letty Aronson, Erika Aronson, and Edward Walson. It also marks Allen’s 48th feature film.
Timberlake most recently attended the Cannes Film Festival alongside Anna Kendrick where his animated film Trolls premiered. This isn’t his first foray from music to movies: the nine-time Grammy winner has appeared in films such as The Social Network, Runner Runner, Friends with Benefits and Inside Llewyn Davis.
Meanwhile, Allen’s latest flick Café Society starring Kristen Stewart, Blake Lively, Jesse Eisenberg and many more also opened at Cannes (and will be released in theaters July 15). He is also currently in post-production on his very first television show, an untitled (of course) six-episode series he wrote and directed for Amazon. It stars himself, Miley Cyrus and Elaine May, and will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video later this year.
