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.
