Justin Timberlake in New Flaming Lips Movie?

It took Wayne Coyne and The Flaming Lips seven years to complete their film, Christmas on Mars, but they're already back hard at work on a new one.

Front man Wayne Coyne says he hopes to use "real actors" this time, instead of using himself and his band mates to play the main characters. Rolling Stone reports that he's in the midst of begging Justin Timberlake to do the job.

"If I'm lucky I'll be able to wear him down in another year," Coyne says.

I guess we'll have to be patient to find out if Coyne gets his wish, but I don't think there's any shortage of bizzare videos by the band to watch in the meantime.
