Justin Timberlake to play a folk musician
Los Angeles: Singer-actor Justin Timberlake is reportedly all set to secure another big role in a project titled `Inside Llewyn Davis` shortly after releasing his futuristic action film `In Time`.
The 30-year-old star, who played Sean Parker in `The Social Network`, is eyed to play a folk musician named Jim.
Jim`s wife, Jean, will be played by Carey Mulligan and the project will be directed by two brothers, Joel Coen and Ethan Coen, Variety reported.
The folk music movie centers on a singer-songwriter who navigates New York`s folk music scene during the 1960s. The lead character is inspired by Dave Van Ronk, a folk singer who is also a friend of Bob Dylan and other notable musicians.
With the production being scheduled to begin in early 2012, the drama is expected to arrive in theaters across the US sometime in 2013.
