NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Country singer Lyle Lovett and Harry Dean Stanton are traveling with Justin Timberlake and Jeff Bridges on “The Open Road.”

Stanton will play the grandfather of Timberlake’s character, a young man trying to reconcile with his father (Bridges) as he heads home to his ill mother’s bedside. Lovett will play a Memphis bartender who lends a helpful ear to Timberlake.

Writer-director Michael Meredith (“Three Days of Rain”) is shooting the project in Louisiana and other Southern locales.

Stanton and Timberlake co-starred in the suburban crime drama “Alpha Dog.” Lovett appeared in “Three Days of Rain.”
