Following the debut of Tom Hanks’ latest summer blockbuster ‘Greyhound’ on Apple TV+ last week, Apple has just announced its next original movie project titled ‘Palmer,’ starring Justin Timberlake, Juno Temple, Academy Award nominee June Squibb, Alisha Wainright, and directed by Fisher Stevens.
Written by Cheryl Guerriero, ‘Palmer’ follows a former college football phenomenon named Eddie Palmer 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 young boy who has been abandoned by his wayward mother.
An SK Global project, ‘Palmer’ is produced by Sidney Kimmel, John Penotti, Charlie Corwin, Daniel Nadler and Academy Award-winning producer Charles B. Wessler. The film is executive produced by Terry Dougas, Jean-Luc De Fanti, Mark O’Connor, Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis and Bruce Toll.
‘Palmer’ joins the growing list of upcoming Apple original films, including the recently announced ‘Snow Blind,’ ‘Emancipation,’ ‘Killers of the Flower Moon,’ and ‘The Sky is Everywhere.’
