Justin Timberlake has signed on to portray the music mogul who launched the careers of Kiss, Donna Summer and The Village People in a new biopic.
The pop star/actor will also produce Spinning Gold, which chronicles the career of Neil Bogart.

Bogart became a big player in the music industry back in the 1970s after launching Boardwalk Records. He died of cancer in 1982, at the age of 39.

Bogart’s son Timothy Scott Bogart is writing the screenplay for the biopic.
