Justin Timberlake Just Signed On To Do ANOTHER Film!

| Filed under: Justin TimberlakeFilm Flickers

Justin Timberlake Neil Bogart

We keep waiting for him to bring the music back, but apparently he is just not interested!

Justin Timberlake just agreed to star in the upcoming biopic about the legendary Neil Bogart.

Bogart was the co-founder of Casablanca Records — a company that boomed in the 70s, launching the careers of KISS, The Village People, Donna Summer, Parliament, etc..

Bogart died of cancer in 1982. He was only 39.

Left behind were his two sons, both of whom have been working on creating this film for three decades.

Evan "Kidd" Bogart and Timothy Scott Bogart insisted on holding off on production until they could find the perfect person to portray their father.

And when Justin was suggested, they said:

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. We needed an young actor who can carry this picture. When Justin walked into the room, that was the moment I had been waiting for 29 years. He has the exact same energy as my father, the same glimmer in his eye.

Well we can't argue with you there! We just want to hear new music too!

    Something about Justin in the photo reminds me of George Michael.

    Not a fan of Justin Timberlake overall, but music is clearly his strong point. He can't act worth a shit outside of a SNL skit.

    Oh boy. I'm so happy he finally caught a break in life. Now what about the other 300 million of us?

    The movie doesn't even start shooting until the end of 2012. He could be recording now for all we know. Gives him plenty of time to make an album, shoot the movie then tour. Movies don't come out for over a year after shooting so he can still do both.

    More money, more fame, more fun. The guy can't complain eh? Music is so fickle it makes acting looks stable. Good for him for being so good at both he can choose.

    "Straight to DVD" movie, I see. Just like his very first movie. If by chance it makes it to the movie theaters, it'll tank just like all his other movies. Obviously the Bogart sons are just wanting to get the movie made after waiting so very long that they don't even care if it makes money or not. Otherwise they would've looked at Justin's track record with money making movies. P.S. - I don't count "Social Network" as there were many more actors in the movie that had talent that carried the film.
