Justin Timberlake Lands Soundtrack Deal, 60s Era Movie Role

Justin Timberlake will not only star in the forthcoming '60s era movie "Inside Llewyn Davis," the "Suit & Tie" singer will be featured on the soundtrack!

JT broke the news via Capital FM this week, confirming that he actually recorded music already and it was with Mumford & Sons' artist Marcus Mumford.

"I don't know any other world where we would get the opportunity to collaborate like that but it was so much fun," Timberlake said in an interview. "Not only will that be a great movie, but the music to it will be fantastic."

Timberlake is right. Who would have expected a collaboration with him and Mumford & Sons?

Nonetheless, CBS has acquired the movie, which does not have a U.S. release date as of yet.

"Inside Llewyn Davis" focuses on the '60s folk music scene and also stars Carey Mulligan.

As previously reported, JT's "The 20/20 Experience" album is due for release March 19.
