Stanton will play the grandfather of Timberlake's character, a young man trying to reconcile with his father (Bridges) as he heads home to his ill mother's bedside. Lovett will play a Memphis bartender who lends a helpful ear to Timberlake.
Writer-director Michael Meredith (Three Days of Rain) is shooting the project in Louisiana and other Southern locales. Between Lovett, Timberlake, and Stanton, this movie has quite the musical contingent. It's hard to say at this point how good or bad this movie will be, but I tend to agree with Roger Ebert when he says that "no movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad."
