Woody Allen's projects are as secretive as their casting reports are numerous. Today, Justin Timberlake is joining Kate Winslet, Juno Temple and Jim Belushi for whatever the Annie Hall writer/director and four-time Academy Award–winner has on deck.

The movie will film in New York, and that's all the new information we have for now. Good time to note, though, that Miley Cyrus is starring in Woody Allen's first-ever TV show, a project happening at Amazon.

Timberlake's last onscreen role, not counting a Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping cameo, was in 2013's Runner Runner. (He also did the Coen Brothers' Oscar-nominated Inside Llewyn Davis that year.) This fall, he'll be one of the main voice actors in the Trolls movie; he's also playing executive producer for the soundtrack, which will feature his No. 1 single "Can't Stop the Feeling."

Allen's annual film this year is Café Society, a 1930s tale starring Steve Carell, Jesse Eisenberg, Sheryl Lee, Corey Stoll and Parker Posey. Last year's joint was the Joaquin Phoenix/Emma Stone–starring Irrational Man. Despite serious molestation allegations, the Allen industry continues to churn on.
