There are three projects in development with the working title of Friends with Benefits, and now one of them has landed Justin Timberlake. Will Gluck is directing this one for Screen Gems, about “a headhunter [who] recruits a magazine editor and since each is too busy to find a mate, they agree to sleep together with no strings attached.

The third use of the title is an NBC pilot written by (500) Days of Summer writers Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber.

After the break, we’ll check in on Winona Ryder and Anna Friel. Read More »
