Justin Timberlake will play music producer Neil Bogart in 'Spinning Gold'

Justin Timberlake has been cast in the Neil Bogart biopic Spinning Gold, EW has confirmed, playing the self-made music producer, whose Casablanca Records was responsible for launching the careers of 1970s icons including KISS, Donna Summer, The Village People, and Parliament. (Deadline first reported the story.)

The film also marks Timberlake’s debut as a feature producer in association with Boardwalk Entertainment Group, which Bogart’s sons co-founded. “From the moment we met Justin, we knew we’d found our Neil Bogart,” said Tim Bogart, who also wrote the screenplay, in a 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.”
