Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne 'begging' Justin Timberlake to appear in new film

Coyne wants pop star to help him out

Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne 'begging' Justin Timberlake to appear in new film
The Flaming Lips' frontman Wayne Coyne says he wants to recruit Justin Timberlake to feature in a new film he is making.

Coyne told Billboard that he is hard at work on the new film, which will be his first foray into movies since completing 2008's 'Christmas On Mars'.

Like that film, the new project will mostly be shot with Coyne's bandmates, friends and family in Oklahoma City, though the frontman has also spoken about Timberlake's planned cameo appearance.

"I'm going to try to get real actors too," he said. "I'm in the process of begging Justin Timberlake to be part of it; if I'm lucky I'll be able to wear him down in another year."

Coyne's last cinematic project took seven years to finish, and he is unclear whether the new film will be as arduous. "I think everybody would be relieved if it all got done in six weeks and we could say, 'Look at that!' But because I get to do it with people I love and it's my art, I don't care how long it takes!"

The Flaming Lips are currently gearing up to release their version of Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon' album on CD this May.
