Justin Timberlake 's known as a golfer, but if one report is correct, he'll be showing off his basketball skills soon...on the big screen.

The film industry news website The Tracking Board reports that Justin has signed to play real-life basketball player Jack Ryan in a movie called Release: The Jack Ryan story.   Ryan is a New York City street ball legend who never played in the NBA, but is still considered to be one of the most gifted players ever.  He did play with the Harlem Wizards, an entertainment team, and toured with them internationally.  He now works putting on one-man basketball shows at corporate events, half-time shows, NBA events and parties, and is also a motivational speaker.

The movie is based on a documentary of the same name about Ryan.  No word on when the movie will begin shooting, or whether Justin will do his own basketball stunts.
