Timberlake as Bogart

JUSTIN BOGART? Justin Timberlake is set to star as music executive Neil Bogart, the man who launched Casablanca Records, in a movie called Spinning Gold, which will tell the story of the colorful record exec, who died of cancer in 1982 at the age of 39, according to HitFix’s Melinda Newman. The film is being written by Tim Bogart and produced by Boardwalk Films, an indie company run by Bogart’s son, as well as by Timberlake. Production is expected to begin before the end of 2012. There are also plans for a soundtrack album that will include remakes of some of Casablanca's biggest hits by contemporary artists. After stints at Cameo-Parkway and Buddah Records, Bogart co-founded Casablanca Records, whose first signing was Kiss, but the label will always be associated with disco acts like Donna Summer and the Village People, as well as funk act Parliament. He then started Boardwalk Records with Joan Jett as his debut artist. (9/26p)
