Apple Acquires Justin Timberlake Film 'Palmer'.

Apple has picked up rights to the Justin Timberlake-led drama feature “Palmer” which also stars Juno Temple, June Squibb, Ryder Allen and Alisha Wainright.

The movie, written and executive produced by Cheryl Guerriero, whose script appeared on the 2016 Blacklist, follows a former college football phenomenon named Eddie Palmer (Timberlake) who, after a stint in prison, returns to his hometown to get his life back on track. There, he faces not only lingering conflicts from his past but also a much more surprising challenge as he finds himself suddenly in charge of a unique young boy who has been abandoned by his wayward mother.

Apple recently debuted the Tom Hanks war drama “Greyhound” on its Apple TV Plus service. Its upcoming films include “Snow Blind” with Jake Gyllenhaal attached to star; Martin Scorsese’s forthcoming “Killers of the Flower Moon” toplined by Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro; “Emancipation” from director Antoine Fuqua, and starring and produced by Will Smith; “Sharper” starring and produced by Julianne Moore; “The Sky Is Everywhere” based on the best-selling YA novel of the same name; and “On the Rocks” from Sofia Coppola, with Bill Murray and Rashida Jones.
