Justin Timberlake To Make New Music… For A Film

It’s not a new album, but it’s a step in the right direction — Justin Timberlake is taking the same leap as artists like Trent Reznor and Daft Punk and will compose his first film score. The pop star-turned-actor will be the composer and music supervisor for the film The Devil And The Deep Blue Sea, which will star Chloe Moretz and Justin’s fiance, Jessica Biel. (We’d typically discourage couples working together on the same project, but we’re fairly sure a film’s composer and lead actress won’t have too many opportunities to create drama on set.)

The film, to be directed by Bill Purple in a production beginning this fall, will explore a recently widowed man’s daily grief after his wife (Biel) dies in a car accident. Can’t you already hear “SexyBack” playing in your heads?! [Via Indiewire]
