Apple TV+ has announced upcoming film “Palmer,” starring Justin Timberlake and directed by Fisher Stevens, from SK Global. Written by Cheryl Guerriero, “Palmer” follows a former college football phenomenon named Eddie Palmer (played by Timberlake) who, after a stint in prison, returns to his hometown to get his life back on track. There, he faces not only lingering conflicts from his past but also a much more surprising challenge as he finds himself suddenly in charge of a unique young boy who has been abandoned by his wayward mother. Along with Timberlake, “Palmer” stars Juno Temple, Academy Award nominee June Squibb, Alisha Wainright, and introduces Ryder Allen.
“Palmer” joins Apple original films including the recently announced “Snow Blind,” with Jake Gyllenhaal; Martin Scorsese’s forthcoming “Killers of the Flower Moon,” starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Robert De Niro; “Emancipation,” starring Will Smith; “Sharper,” starring Julianne Moore; “The Sky is Everywhere,” based on the best-selling YA novel of the same name; and “On the Rocks” from Sofia Coppola, starring Bill Murray and Rashida Jones.
