Actor Justin Timberlake is in discussions to co-star with Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci in "Black Snake Moan"
The "Black Snake Moan" is really annoying young actor Justin Timberlake that he is now in discussion to jump in the Craig Brewer direction. Timberlake is planning to co-star with Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci in the Paramount Classics film, budgeted at about $13 million.
"Black Snake Moan," which actually is taken from a 1920s blues record by Blind Lemon Jefferson, will revolve the story of a blues guitarist, played by Jackson, abandoned by his wife. He tries to redeem the soul of a girl, Ricci, addicted to sex in a rural town. Timberlake would play Ricci's boyfriend. The movie is set to shoot in September in Memphis.
