The film, titled Spinning Gold, will follow Bogart’s rise to success as a record executive who put artists like KISS, Donna Summer, and the Village People on the map.

“This is saga about a young dreamer who started with nothing and came of age in the ’60s and ’70s, believing anything was possible and every risk was worth taking,” Bogart’s son and the film’s screenwriter, Tim Bogart, told Deadline.

Timberlake will also produce the flick, which comes from Boardwalk Films.
