Justin Timberlake has reportedly joined the cast of a new biopic called Spinning Gold, about the legendary disco music pioneer Neil Bogart.
The 'Mirrors' singer is set to both produce and star in the newly announced project, about the founder of disco label Casablanca Records in the 1970s.
According to the Hollywood Reporter Justin is set to produce alongside both fellow actor Matt Damon and Neil Bogart's son Timothy Scott, who is working on the script.
