Justin Timberlake is returning to onscreen acting, signing on to star in “Before the Flood” and “The Cove” director Fisher Stevens’ new dramatic feature “Palmer” for SK Global. Filming begins in the late fall.
Cheryl Guerriero’s Black List script follows a former college football phenomenon who returns from prison to his hometown to try and get his life back on track. He faces not only lingering conflicts from his past but also a more surprising challenge as he finds himself suddenly in charge of a unique young boy abandoned by his wayward mother.
Charles B. Wessler, John Penotti, Charlie Corwin, Sidney Kimmel and Daniel Nadler will produce. Penotti and Corwin said in a statement, “Justin and Fisher bring a resonant perspective to this emotional story. It is both timely and ultimately a hopeful, entertaining story about the resilience and power of human kindness.”
