The Flaming LipsWayne Coyne has started work on a new movie, which he says he wants Justin Timberlake to feature in.

Coyne‘s last foray into movies was 2008’s ‘Christmas On Mars’, and, like that film, his new project will mostly be shot with Coyne‘s bandmates, friends and family in Oklahoma City.

However, the frontman has also spoken about Timberlake‘s planned cameo appearance.

“I’m going to try to get real actors too,” he told Billboard. “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.”

Speaking about how long the project may take to finish, Coyne said: “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!”
