Timberlake says no to Annie role

Justin Timberlake is not taking a role in the Annie movie

Justin Timberlake has denied rumours that he will be appearing in Annie.

There had been rumours that the singer, who released his new album The 20/20 Experience this week, could be starring opposite Quvenzhane Wallis as Daddy Warbucks in the Annie remake.

But a spokesperson for film studio Sony told the New York Post: "Not true."

There had been buzz around Hollywood, with sources claiming that Justin was being considered for the role and speculation that he would be teaming up with Jay-Z again, following their collaboration on Suit And Tie and going on tour together.

Rapper Jay-Z is producing the Annie remake with Will Smith, which Willow Smith was originally attached to.

Justin - who will be sharing the stage with Jay-Z at London's Wireless festival - will next be seen in the Coen brothers' musical biopic Inside Llewyn Davis and thriller Runner, Runner.
