Ever wanted to spend the night with Justin Timberlake? Now you can, because Netflix has snapped up the global rights to Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids.
The concert movie is directed by Jonathan Demme and showcases the singer’s final date of his 20/20 Experience world tour at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The director of The Silence of the Lambs and Justin Timberlake? It’s par for the course for Demme, who recently made musician drama Ricki and the Flash, and has filmed a number of music documentaries in the last 12 years, from Kenny Chesney: Unstaged to Neil Young Journeys and Neil Young: heart of Gold.
It’s slightly less of a par for course for Netflix. While Netflix UK as both of Demme’s Neil Young films, along with Davie Bowie: Five Years, Searching for Sugar Man, Janis: Little Girl Blue and more, Justin Timberlake + The Tennessee Kids is the streaming giant’s first original concert movie – so far, its original music films have only been documentaries, such as What Happened, Miss Simone? and Keith Richards: Under the Influence.
The entertainment streaming company acquired global rights to the performance film, which is is a Playtone Production, exec produced by Rocco Caruso, H.H. Cooper, Rick Yorn, Johnny Wright and Michael Rapino and financed by Live Nation Productions, ahead of its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on Tuesday 13th September.
Surrounded by the 25 band members of The Tennessee Kids and featuring show-stopping performances from one of the highest-grossing tours of the decade, the film is a culmination of Timberlake’s 134 shows and 2 years on the road.
The film will be available to stream globally on Netflix on Friday 12th October.
