Ryder Allen Joins Justin Timberlake’s ‘Palmer’; ‘Sneaky Pete’s Libe Barer Set For ‘Slapface’

Ryder Allen is set to join Justin Timberlake in the forthcoming drama Palmer directed by Fisher Stevens and written by Cheryl Guerriero, whose script appeared on the 2016 Blacklist.

The film features Timberlake as the titular Eddie Palmer, a former college football phenomenon 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, loner 7-year-old boy named Sam (Allen) who has been abandoned by his wayward mother. Palmer marks Allen’s feature film debut.

Academy Award-winning producer Charles B. Wessler (Green Book) will produce alongside Sk Global co-CEOs John Penotti and Charlie Corwin. Sidney Kimmel and Daniel Nadler will also produce. Sk Global and Nadler will co-finance the film.

Allen is repped by Paradigm and Trilogy Talent.
