Shocking news – filming for the upcoming sci-fi thriller Now has come to a grinding halt as Justin Timberlake hurts his leg!
The Social Network star has been seen sporting a pair of crutches since suffering an injury to his left calf whilst on the set of the film. Speaking with Entertainment Tonight, Mr. Trousersnake said, “I wish I had a way better story about how I got into this Bruce Lee, kung-fu fight with someone and ‘you should see the other guy,’ but unfortunately I did it to myself.”
The Lovestoned singer, who also stars in the upcoming rom-com Friends with Benefits with Mila Kunis, had been busy shooting the latest film from Andrew Niccol, whose directing credits include sci fi hit Gattaca and the hard-hitting Lord of War.
Now is set in the future, where people no longer age, but are required to pay to stay alive in order to avoid overpopulation. Timberlake plays a man who inherits a fortune, but is then accused of the murder of his benefactor, and is forced to go on the run from a corrupt police force known as the ‘time keepers’.
Now was scheduled for a 2011 release, but it has been confirmed that the production will be suspended while Timberlake recovers. We can’t wait to see JT bring ‘sexy back’ to the big screen, so we hope he gets better soon. We’ll keep you posted!
