Justin Timberlake had reportedly agreed to star in a biopic about the late legendary record executive Neil Bogart, who co-founded Casablanca Records, the label that made stars out of KISS, Cher, Donna Summer and the Village People.

The movie called Spinning Gold, is finally underway.  After two years in development Spinning Gold still does not have a script, but the film is slated to shoot early next year; an elaborate soundtrack is also planned.

Neil Bogart's Casablanca Records produced a huge catalogue of hits.  It's history infamous for being the ultimate in debauchery.  One famous story claims that in the Casablanca offices, receptionists would come around every afternoon to take employees' drug orders.  Bogart died of cancer in 1982.
