*After two years stuck in limbo, there is movement on a biopic about 1970s record icon Neil Bogart, who nurtured the careers of Curtis Mayfield, Bill Withers, Gladys Knight, Parliament, Donna Summer and The Village People among many others.

The pic, titled “Spinning Gold,” is set up to be financed and sold at the Cannes Film Festival by Foresight Unlimited, with Justin Timberlake in the lead role, as well as a co-producer with Foresight’s CEO Mark Damon, Laurence Mark and Boardwalk Entertainment’s Timothy Scott Bogart and Gary A. Randall.

They hope to begin production next year.

Neil Bogart died in 1982 at age 39.
