Craig Brewer

After diving into the world of rap in Hustle & Flow and following it up with the odd Black Snake Moan, director Craig Brewer is in talks to reunite with one of the co-stars from the latter Southern drama for his next project. As we learned late last summer, Justin Timberlake is producing the remake of the 1980 music industry drama The Idolmaker, and now Brewer has been tapped to direct the film. However, Variety says Timberlake is still staying behind the camera as a only producer and won't be starring in the story of a mercenary music promoter who takes on two boys with the intent of turning them into teen idols.

But still, Timberlake's experience as part of the boy band *NSYNC makes him perfect to see this story come to life. The singer and actor can certainly offer the right amount of insight, and we're betting the 80s story will be update to fit in with the contemporary music world. It would be interesting if Timberlake had some sort of cameo as himself or another famous musician, but we'll see what happens. Brewer has a flare for films with a musical edge with the surprisingly decent remake of Footloose also in his past. We'll definitely be keeping our eye on this project to see how it pans out.
