Justin Timberlake Wanted for The Flaming Lips' New Movie

March 9, 2010 (9:12 am) GMT
After making hit with their movie 'Christmas on Mars', The Flaming Lips are set to shoot their second project, hoping Justin Timberlake to take part of it.

Quirky rockers are planning another movie adventure after their 2008 film "Christmas on Mars" became a hit among fans - and they want to star in it. The group are hoping to turn family members and friends into stars by recruiting them for their latest film project, which will be filmed in and around the band's native Oklahoma City.

But frontman Wayne Coyne admits he's keen to land a few big stars as well. He tells 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."

Timberlake first teamed up with the group for a performance on Britain's Top of the Pops in 2002, during which the singer wore a dolphin costume and played the bass.
