Justin Timberlake will produce the score for animated movie Trolls as well as voice one of the characters.
The pop superstar, who has made his mark as an actor in films like Inside Llewyn Davis and The Social Network, was cast alongside Anna Kendrick in September, and now he is adding the role of executive music producer to his slate.
Timberlake will write and perform original songs for the family comedy and help with the creative direction of the film's music, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
"I have always envisioned bringing the two worlds of film and music together for one epic event (and) couldn't be more excited that they will collide in DreamWorks' Trolls," Timberlake said in a statement.
"This film is very special, the music is going to be very special and I can't wait for everyone to experience it all."
Trolls, based on the popular toy dolls, will be directed by Shrek Forever After duo Mike Mitchell and Walt Dohrn. It is set for release in November.
