Though Timbaland has dabbled in music production in years past for movies such as Feel The Noise (2007), XXX: State of the Union (2006), and Shark Tale (2004), he’s hoping his first production behind the scenes will be a success.
According to Billboard, the Virginian super-producer will be executive-producing a feature film called Vinyl. Partnering with director/writer Richard Zelniker, the two have been tapped to bring the story of five young women living in difficult situations while in relationships with members of a Rock band to a big screen.
This feature film venture will also include several Mosley Music Group members, including Marcus Spence and Timbaland's wife and publicist Monique Idlett-Mosley. The venture comes as a partnership with Duly Noted Inc., a production company created in 2001 by film producer Effie T. Brown.
Filming for Vinyl begins in Spring of 2009.
