Justin Timberlake Signs On For 'Spinning Gold'
Justin Timberlake is set to star in and produce the upcoming film Spinning Gold from Boardwalk Films.
The 30-year-old entertainer will take on the role of Neil Bogart, the ’70s music legend who founded Casablanca Records and is credited for helping launch the careers of artists such as KISS, Parliament, Donna Summer, and The Village People.
“This movie is literally three decades in the making, but we knew that without the perfect actor to bring our father to life on film, his essence and impact on the lives and careers he inspired would never be fully captured – from the moment we met Justin, we knew we’d found our Neil Bogart,” producer and screenwriter Tim Bogart said in a press release.
“With Justin also a producer on the movie, together we’re crafting this saga about a young dreamer who started with nothing and came of age in the 60s and 70s, believing anything was possible and every risk was worth taking. Though he died at only 39, he lived to see all his dreams come true,” he added.
