Justin Timberlake will be "Spinning Gold" Casablanca Records-Style! 


Deadline is reporting that Justin Timberlake has just signed on to star in "Spinning Gold," a biopic of the co-founder of Casablanca Records, 1970s record producer Neil Bogart.

Timberlake will also serve as a producer on the movie, a first for the multi-tasker. The singer-actor will produce the film along with Bogart's sons, Timothy Scott and Evan "Kidd." TV producer Gary Randall will also produce "Spinning Gold." Timberlake's manager, Rick Yorn, will act as the executive producer.

The script is written by Tim Bogart and "tells the rags-to-riches story of Neil Bogart, a dirt-poor Jewish kid from Brooklyn who went on to become a multimillionaire and help define 1970s pop culture with his Casablanca label that launched the careers of such superstars as KISS, Parliament, Donna Summer, and The Village People."

I remember Casablanca Records as a child, so this is a great reminder of that fabulous 70s decade! This is also right up Timberlake's alley, so I think the actor-singer will be able to breathe life into the biopic of Neil Bogart.

Start dusting off your 70s dancing boots!
