Former boy band member-turned-actor Justin Timberlake is set to star in the upcoming David Yates helmed YOUR VOICE IN MY HEAD.
The drama centers around a young self-destructive woman who must battle her inner demons as she traverses the road to a healthier mental state. The cast was already looking promising with “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson tapped to star as the film’s lead role appropriately named, Emma. Stanley Tucci, of recent “Hunger Games” fame, is in negotiations to play the leading role of Dr. Rosecan, a middle aged psychiatrist who takes Emma under his wings.
Timberlake will find himself in a supporting role as Jay, a handsome news reporter and Emma’s ex-boyfriend, who has difficulty grasping how he can help Emma with her mental state. The actor proved he was more than a pretty face on screen with strong supporting roles in 2007′s “Alpha Dog” and “Black Snake Moan”. Since then he’s turned in an equally strong role as Napster founder Sean Parker in David Fincher’s Facebook smash-hit “The Social Network”.
Between his work on the big screen, his joyful appearances on “Saturday Night Live” and his successful music career, Timberlake is proving himself to be a Hollywood renaissance man and his presence in “Your Voice In My Head” will be a welcomed with open arms.
The film is being produced by Alison Owen.
Timberlake is repped by CAA.
