After two years stuck in the mud, the movie Spinning Gold, with Justin Timberlake as 1970s record icon Neil Bogart, seems to be spinning. Scripted by Timothy Scott Bogart, the pic is set up to be financed and sold at Cannes by Foresight Unlimited. Bogart nurtured the career of Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, Gladys Knight, KISS, Parliament, Donna Summer and The Village People among many others. He died in 1982 at age 39. Foresight’s CEO Mark Damon will produce the film alongside Timberlake, Laurence Mark and Boardwalk Entertainment’s Timothy Scott Bogart and Gary A. Randall. They hope to get underway next year.
