No, Justin Timberlake is not going to star in a modern day version of Rumpelstiltskin sillies!
The movie will tell the rags-to-riches story of the poor kid from Brooklyn who grew up to become a pop music culture legend by launching the careers of Curtis Mayfield, Gladys Knight, KISS, and the Village People to name a few.
"For over 30 years, my father's story has been the source of intense fascination.The wait to finally tell the story had always ben about partnering with the right person to play him — and the wait ended the first time Justin I ever met."
But JT isn't going to be the only one supplying the star power for the flick!
Luckily for Matt, his leading man already plans to be at Cannes for his OTHER sure-to-be hit Inside Lleweyn Davis.
He has his seXXXy hand in so many projects right now, we don't know how he does it all!
Filming isn't scheduled to take place until next year, but we can't wait to see that gorgeous, talented mug return to theaters!!!!
