Lovett, Stanton Travel The Open Road

Lyle Lovett and Harry Dean Stanton are joining “The Open Road” for Perfect Weekend and Odd Lot Entertainment says Reuters.

Stanton will play the grandfather of Justin Timberlake’s character, a young man trying to reconcile with his father (Jeff Bridges) as he heads home to his ill mother’s bedside.

Lovett will play a Memphis bartender who lends a helpful ear to Timberlake. Kate Mara and Mary Steenburgen also star.

Writer-director Michael Meredith (“Three Days of Rain”) is shooting the project in Louisiana and other Southern locales.
