Don’t count on Justin Timberlake heading back to the recording studio any time soon. Word on the street is the Coen brothers have him firmly in their sights for a lead role in upcoming project Inside Llweyn Davis.
The movie is set in 1960s Greenwich Village, New York. It tracks the struggles of the title character (Oscar Isaac), a talented folk musician who can’t seem to get a proper toehold.
If Timberlake accepts a role, he will play fellow musician Jim, who’s married to Jean (aka Carey Mulligan, who’s defo locked in to the film).
Isaac’s character is loosely based on singer/songwriter Dave Van Ronk, who was mates with Bob Dylan back in the day.
Filming is due to start in New York early-2012.
