Justin Timberlake, James Belushi, Juno Temple and Kate Winslet will star in Woody Allen’s upcoming 48th feature, its producers announced Thursday.

The untitled film, which begins shooting this fall in New York, is being produced by Allen’s sister and longtime producing partner Letty Aronson, her daughter Erika Aronson and Edward Walson, who produced Allen’s four previous movies.

In June, Variety said Winslet, 40, was in final negotiations to star.

Nine-time Grammy Award-winner Timberlake, 35, has appeared in numerous films since 2000, and was a star of “The Social Network” (2010), “Bad Teacher,” “Friends with Benefits” (both 2011), “Runner Runner” and “Inside Llewyn Davis” (both 2013).

Deadline.com said Wednesday that Jim Belushi, 62, had joined the cast and that the film was a period drama set in the late 1950s.

The prolific Temple, 26, daughter of director Julien Temple, most recently starred in last year’s film “Black Mass” and the HBO series “Vinyl.”

No distributor has been announced for Allen’s new film. His “Café Society,” opening July 15, is being released theatrically by Lionsgate.

Additionally, Allen, 80, is in postproduction on his first television show, an untitled six-episode series he wrote and directed for Amazon starring himself, Miley Cyrus and Elaine May. It will premiere on Amazon Prime Video this year.
