Spike Lee for Timberlake film?

Spike Lee could be set to direct Justin Timberlake in the biopic of record executive Neil Bogart.

Singer and actor Justin has already been lined up to play the lead character in the film, Spinning Gold.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Malcolm X and Do The Right Thing director Spike is in early talks to make the film.

Neil, who founded Casablanca Records and died in 1982 at the age of just 39, was closely associated with the rise of disco.

He launched the careers of Curtis Mayfield, Gladys Knight, Donna Summer and the Village People.

The rags-to-riches tale is being penned by Timothy Scott Bogart, the son of the record executive.
