Timberlake, Jonathan team up for concert film

Los Angeles, Aug 30 (IANS) Justin Timberlake has teamed up with “The Silence of the Lambs” director Jonathan Demme for a film about the pop star’s ’20/20 Experience World Tour’.

Demme shot Timberlake’s final stop on the 134-date tour on January 2 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, reports ew.com.

“It’s very emotional, very exciting. It’s a space age music film,” Demme said.

The director added that there was “tremendous dancing” in the film.

“(Timberlake has) got an extraordinary band called the Tennessee Kids. Huge horn section, two lead guitars, two drummers, eight dancers, four exquisite background singers,” Demme said. “And we caught them on their last performance.”

Timberlake, whom Demme calls “a funky Fred Astaire”, has had his share of film experience, appearing in movies such as “The Social Network”, “Inside Llewyn Davis,” “Friends With Benefits” and “Runner Runner”.
