Justin Timberlake Joins Woody Allen’s New Movie

Justin Timberlake and Juno Temple have joined Kate Winslet and Jim Belushi in Woody Allen’s untitled new movie.

The film, written and directed by Allen, is a drama set in New York City in the late 1950s. Allen is producing with Letty Aronson, Erika Aronson and Edward Walson. The pic marks Allen’s 48th feature and begins shooting in New York this fall.

Allen’s “Cafe Society,” which opened the Cannes Film Festival, will be released by Lionsgate and Amazon in the U.S. on July 15. The romantic drama stars Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Blake Lively, Steve Carell, Parker Posey, Corey Stoll, Jeannie Berlin and Ken Stott.

Allen is in post-production on his first-ever television show — an untitled six-episode series he wrote and directed for Amazon starring himself, Miley Cyrus and Elaine May. It will premiere exclusively on Amazon Prime Video later this year.

Timberlake has won nine Grammys as a singer. His film career includes “The Social Network,” “Bad Teacher,” “Runner Runner” and “Inside Llewyn Davis.”

Temple’s credits include “The Dark Knight Rises,” “Black Mass,” “Maleficent,” “Killer Joe,” “Far From the Madding Crowd” and the recently-cancelled HBO series “Vinyl.”
