No, Justin Timberlake is not going to star in a modern day version of Rumpelstiltskin sillies!
Even though we're well aware of his ability to spin straw into gold, the Mirrors singer will actually be proving his multi-talented prowess once again in the 1970s Neil Bogart biopic Spinning Gold!!!
The movie will tell the rags-to-riches story of the poor kid from Brooklyn who grew up to become a pop music culture legend by launching the careers of Curtis Mayfield, Gladys Knight, KISS, and the Village People to name a few.
Timothy Scott Bogart, script writer and son of the movie's subject, said:
"For over 30 years, my father's story has been the source of intense fascination.The wait to finally tell the story had always ben about partnering with the right person to play him — and the wait ended the first time Justin I ever met."
But JT isn't going to be the only one supplying the star power for the flick!
Justin's latest creative endeavor will be financed and produced by none other than Matt Damon, who plans to shop the film at the Cannes Film Market.
Luckily for Matt, his leading man already plans to be at Cannes for his OTHER sure-to-be hit Inside Lleweyn Davis.
He has his seXXXy hand in so many projects right now, we don't know how he does it all!
Filming isn't scheduled to take place until next year, but we can't wait to see that gorgeous, talented mug return to theaters!!!!
