Justin Timberlake to Star as an Alcoholic Food Critic in THE LAST DROP

     September 26, 2012


Those holding their breath for another album from Justin Timberlake will likely be waiting for a very long time.  Coming off of a fine performance opposite Clint Eastwood in Trouble with the Curve, Timberlake is looking to nab the lead role in the romantic dramedy The Last Drop as his next project.  The film centers on a charming alcoholic working as a restaurant critic for New York Magazine who falls for a young woman and realizes he must overcome his addiction in order to have a relationship with her.  Variety reports that Timberlake is in talks to star, with Peter Sollett (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) onboard to direct the Black List script by Brandon and Phil Murphy.

The Last Drop would continue a solid string of varied projects for Timberlake.  After his impressive turn in The Social Network, Timberlake landed a starring role in Joel and Ethan Coen’s folk music pic Inside Llewyn Davis and showcased his comedic talents in Friends with Benefits.  He’s currently filming the gambling drama Runner Runner opposite Ben Affleck.
