Justin Timberlake will team with “Ricki and the Flash” filmmaker Jonathan Demme for a musical documentary about the singer’s 20/20 Experience World Tour.
Demme reportedly filmed Timberlake’s final stop of his 134-date tour at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on January 2nd. Talking about the film with Variety, Demme says:
“It’s very emotional, very exciting. It’s a space age music film. There’s tremendous dancing in this piece. (Timberlake has) got an extraordinary band called the Tennessee Kids. Huge horn section, two lead guitars, two drummers, eight dancers, four exquisite background singers. And we caught them on their last performance.”
Demme is used to filming musicians and docos as he produced and directed a trio of Neil Young concert docs, along with one for Kenny Chesney and a music video for Bruce Springsteen.
