Justin Timberlake gets his own Friends With Benefits
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Justin Timberlake is lining up the film projects and after completing David Fincher’s THE SOCIAL NETWORK and then sparring with ex-flame Cameron Diaz in BAD TEACHER, the former teen heartthrob is set to star in his own romantic comedy FRIENDS WITH BENEFITS. In this one, he will star as one half of a couple that agree to sleep together with no strings attach, but ultimately the guy falls for the girl, who is already seeing someone else. Sounds a little complicated.
If the title and premise sounds a little familiar, it’s because the same idea and title are being used for two other films. We already told you about the Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman rom-com with the same name. But if competing with Paramount wasn’t enough, NBC also has a pilot TV show called ‘Friends With Benefits’. So expect a name change soon.
