Although he always seems to have the hairdo of a 12-year-old boy, Justin Timberlake’s movie career has really taken off in the last few weeks, and recently he seems to have been trying to prove himself in more meaty, dramatic roles. His turn opposite Clint Eastwood in Trouble with the Curve was recently released in the US, and he’s got the Coen Brothers Inside Llewyn Davis and Brad Furman’s gambling drama Runner, Runner coming up.
Now he’s heading for another dramatic role, as Timberlake is in talks to star in The Last Drop for director Peter Sollett (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist). Assuming he signs on the dotted line, Timberlake will portray an alcoholic restaurant critic for New York Magazine. The foodie realises he has to change his addictive behaviour when he falls for a young woman.
Brandon Murphy and Phil Murphy wrote the screenplay, which landed on the Black List of the best unproduced scripts in 2011. It isn’t known when the movie might shoot. (Source: Variety)
