Spike Lee is in early talks to direct Justin Timberlake’s forthcoming flick, Spinning Gold.
According to Variety, Lee has come on board to direct the biopic about record executive Neil Bogart, but according to CAA, a deal has not been closed.
Foresight Unlimited announced the film during the Cannes Film Festival in May and is set to to talk with international buyers about the biopic at the American Film Market next week.
In the film, Timberlake will play the infamous record exec best known as the founder of Casablanca Records. The movie is expected to start shooting in the middle of next year.
Lee, who is currently filming Mike Tyson: The Undisputed Truth, has been a busy man. Aside from the Tyson comedy starring the former boxer himself, Spike recently completed his thriller Oldboy, starring Samuel L. Jackson. The film is set to hit theaters Nov. 27.
Don’t Worry, Stacey Dash Still Hates Us Black Folks!
Pigs are not flying and hell has not frozen over…
When Damon Dash announced that he was doing a movie called “Honor Up” with Cam’ron and his cousin, conservative Trump-lover extraordinaire Stacey Dash, the internet exploded. The poster alone, with Dash sporting braids and hoop earrings, was enough to torch Stacey’s mentions reminding the actress of her BET-hating, Obama-shading ways.
Captioned, “This is really happening #HonorUp in theaters February #staytuned,” folks really believed Damon. Even ESPN’s Jemele Hill pulled Stacey’s card…
But it seems as though Damon may be out here spreading #FakeNews. Stacey has put her cousin on blast for using their family ties to promote the film.
However, it’s worth noting that Dash didn’t say she wasn’t in the film … just that she doesn’t have a written contract with Damon or Kanye West production company to use her name or image in advertising. Things that make you go, hmmmm.
