Bridges, Timberlake & Steenburgen Hit The Open Road


Jeff Bridges, Justin Timberlake and Mary Steenburgen will star in The Open Road, about a young man trying to reconnect with his father, a legendary athlete, as he struggles to get him home to his ailing mother’s bedside.

Variety says the film, written and to be directed by Michael Meredith (Land of Plenty, Three Days of Rain), is scheduled to film in Louisiana and other Southern states later this month. German helmer Wim Wenders serves as visual consultant to cinematographer Yaron Orbach.

Odd Lot principals Deborah Del-Prete and Gigi Pritzker will executive produce, while Justin Moore-Lewy and Charlie Mason will produce through Perfect Weekend, along with Meredith, David Schiff, Jordan Foley and Laurie Foxx.
