Justin Timberlake To Star In Neil Bogart Biopic 'Spinning Gold'

Foresight Unlimited announced their partnership with Timothy Scott Bogart and Justin Timberlake in creating “Spinning Gold”, a biopic about legendary music exec Neil Bogart who died of cancer at the young age of 39. The script was developed by the award winning writer and son of Neil, Timothy Scott Bogart in collaboration with Justin Timberlake.

Timberlake will star as Bogart, the man who signed famous names like Bill Withers, KISS, Donna Summer, Gladys Knight, The Village People. Bogart had a hand in the careers of many artists during the 60’s and 70’s and his incredible story begins with a childhood in the projects of Brooklyn to becoming a man who defined pop music culture. 

The film will start shooting early next year and will feature new renditions of some of the songs from the famous acts that Bogart signed.
