Justin Timberlake will star in "Spinning Gold," a biopic of iconic 1970s music entrepreneur Neil Bogart for Foresight Unlimited.
Bogart launched the careers of Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, Gladys Knight, KISS, Parliament, Donna Summer and The Village People. He also died young, aged 39, in 1982.
Bogart's son Timothy Scott Bogart developed the script with Timberlake and wrote the screenplay.
Timberlake, Mark Damon, Laurence Mark, Timothy Scott Bogart and Gary A Randall will produce. Shooting kicks off early next year.
