Kelly Rowland To Play Donna Summer In New Movie?

Kelly Rowland To Play Donna Summer In New Movie?

October 1, 2014 | D&L

Kelly Rowland certainly isn’t letting her pregnancy slow her down, as it seems she has another new project in the horizon.

The singer recently released her very own range of exclusive watches – The Kelly Rowland Canteen Bracelet Special Edition – and now it looks like an acting career could possibly be Kelly’s next big venture, portraying Donna Summer.

She recently posted a picture online where she envisions herself being Donna Summer and director Spike Lee is currently working on the film, Spinning Gold, which represents the life and work of American music producer, Neil Bogart.

Bogart, owner of Casablanca Records, has always been closely related to the rise of disco as well as discovering and launching the careers of KISS, Curtis Mayfield, Gladys Knight, Bill Withers, The Village People and of course, Donna Summer.

Justin Timberlake is already set to play Neil Bogart in the movie and Timothy Bogart (Neil’s son) is also working with Spike Lee, writing the script and producing the film to ensure this project is the best representation of his father in the disco era!

Keep a look out for future news on this movie release.
