Inside Movies' Emily Rome reports:
The long-in-development biopic Spinning Gold, about music producer NEIL BOGART, has finally found a financier. Foresight Unlimited has come aboard the project to produce, finance, and handle worldwide sales.
JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE is set to produce and also star as Bogart, a 1970s music industry icon who promoted the careers of such artists as KISS, DONNA SUMMER, and the VILLAGE PEOPLE before he died at age 39. His son, Timothy Scott Bogart, wrote the script for the biopic. Dreamgirls producer Laurence Mark, who earned an Oscar nomination for Jerry Maguire, will also produce.
“Spinning Gold is about a larger than life man who achieved so much in his short life and helped define a generation,” Foresight CEO Mark Damon said in a statement.
