Justin Timberlake To Play Daddy Warbucks in Annie Remake?

Truth rating: 0

By Michael Lewittes


Does Justin Timberlake have another new project on his plate?

The New York Post reports that the singer-actor is being “considered to star as Daddy Warbucks, opposite Quvenzhané Wallis, in the upcoming Jay-Z and Will Smith-produced remake of Annie.”

The paper notes that Timberlake has already joined forces with Jay-Z for his “Suit & Tie” single, as well as the pair’s upcoming “Legends of the Summer” stadium tour.

So, are the superstars set to collaborate on a whole new endeavor?


Gossip Cop reached out to rep for Sony, the studio behind the Annie remake, and we’re told it’s “not true” that Timberlake is in any kind of talks to join the movie.

And a source close to Timberlake similarly informed us that the New York Post report is “not true.”
