If you told us a few years ago that Jim Belushi would star in both a new season of Twin Peaks and a Woody Allen movie, we would have called for the men in white coats.

In Allen's latest, Wonder Wheel, Belushi stars alongside Kate Winslet, Juno Temple and Justin Timberlake in a drama set against the backdrop of Coney Island in the 1950s.

Wonder Wheel opens in the US on December 1st, but a UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.

The official synopsis reads:

WONDER WHEEL tells the story of four characters whose lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of  the Coney Island amusement park in the 1950s: Ginny (Kate Winslet),  a melancholy, emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress in a clam house; Humpty (Jim Belushi), Ginny’s rough-hewn carousel operator husband; Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a handsome young lifeguard who dreams of becoming a playwright; and Carolina (Juno Temple), Humpty’s long-estranged daughter, who is now hiding out from gangsters at her father’s apartment.
