Casablanca Records is one of the most influential music labels in history, but the story of its founder, Neil Bogart, isn't as well-known as it should be. Donna Summer, Parliament, Gladys Knight & the Pips, The Isley Brothers, The Village People, Bill Withers, and the rock band KISS all rose to great heights thanks to Bogart and were signed to the label that would become the most successful independent record company in history. Now, the film "Spinning Gold" looks to transport audiences back to the 1970s, when disco reigned supreme, funk was beginning to pick up steam, and Neil Bogart was on top of the world. Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming music producer biopic, and more.

Spinning Gold Release Date And Where You Can Watch It

"Spinning Gold" will be available in theaters starting March 31, 2023. The film is being distributed by Hero Entertainment and Howling Wolf Films, so there's no real way of predicting where the film may end up as far as streaming services are concerned following the theatrical window. It's a long time coming for the flick that was first announced all the way back in September of 2011, with Justin Timberlake originally attached in the lead role. There were multiple delays during production, including the drug and diamond smuggling scandal with Envision Entertainment, and allegations of unfair labor practices by ACTRA when the film was shooting its scenes in Canada.

Here's The Plot And Trailer For Spinning Gold

"Spinning Gold" is a musical biopic centered on the life and career of Casablanca Records founder and legendary record producer, Neil Bogart. He's the man responsible for discovering beloved musical acts like Donna Summer, The Village People, and KISS, as well as signing influential artists like Gladys Knight & the Pips and the Isley Brothers, and helping launch them into the stratosphere of musical success. Additional artists signed to Casablanca Records include The Godz, Fanny, The Hudson Brothers, and the always underrated T. Rex, but for the most part, Casablanca Records was synonymous with disco and funk. Bogart sadly died of cancer and lymphoma at the young age of 39, leaving behind an incomparable legacy of industry-altering influence. The film was written and directed by Bogart's son, so it's safe to assume that the portrait painted of his legacy will be most flattering.
