Timberlake gets 'Friends with Benefits' and Winona Ryder goes with 'Cheaters’
Thursday 08 April 2010
Singer Justin Timblerlake plans to join the cast of the romantic comedy
Friends with Benefits, not to be confused with Ivan Reitman's film with the same name, starring Natalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher, or a third project, a television series by the writers of
500 Days of Summer, Michael Weber and Scott Neustadter.
This story follows a headhunter and magazine editor, who are too busy to find mates and agree to sleep together with no strings attached - but things get complicated.
Soon Timberlake ( Alpha Dog, Black Snake Moan) will be seen in the role of Napster founder Sean Parker in David Fincher's The Social Network, about the creation of Facebook, opening in October. Also, he is the voice of Boo-Boo in Yogi Bear, and appears with Cameron Diaz in Bad Teacher.
Winona Ryder will star in an upcoming Ron Howard ( Angels & Demons, Frost/Nixon) project called Cheaters or Your Cheating Heart, with Vince Vaughn ( Couples Retreat) and Kevin James ( Paul Blart, Mall Cop). The story is about a man who discovers that his best friend's wife is having an affair, by Allan Loeb ( Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps).
Apparently, Ryder ( Star Trek, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee) won the role over actresses who auditioned such as Kate Beckinsale, Carla Gugino and Uma Thurman. She recently shot Black Swan co-starring Natalie Portman. The new project is set to begin filming in Chicago in May.
