Justin Timberlake is in talks to star alongside Samuel L. Jackson and Christina Ricci in the Paramount drama Black Snake Moan, per The Hollywood Reporter. In the film, Jackson plays a blues guitarist who tries to redeem the soul of a girl (Ricci) addicted to sex. Timberlake would play Ricci's boyfriend. Insiders say Timberlake was a shoo-in for the role, given his prior relationship with sex-obsessed Britney Spears.
