Apple added “Palmer” to its growing lineup of films, which already includes “Emancipation,” “Killers of the Flower Moon” and “Snow Blind.” The new movie stars Justin Timberlake and was directed by Fisher Stevens. Timberlake stars in the film alongside Along Juno Temple, Academy Award nominee June Squibb, Alisha Wainright, and introduces Ryder Allen.
The description reads, “Written by Cheryl Guerriero, “Palmer” follows a former college football phenomenon named Eddie Palmer (played by Timberlake) who, after a stint in prison, returns to his hometown to get his life back on track. There, he faces not only lingering conflicts from his past but also a much more surprising challenge as he finds himself suddenly in charge of a unique young boy who has been abandoned by his wayward mother.”
Apple recently picked up “Snow Blind,” with Jake Gyllenhaal attached to star, and Martin Scorsese’s upcoming adaptation “Killers of the Flower Moon,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro.
