If you thought the above Justin Timberlake “Suit & Tie” lyric video was stylized and sexy, just wait until you find out who’s helming the actual music video. It’s been announced that David Fincher, still hot off the premiere of the Netflix series “House of Cards,” will direct the project.
The Playlist has the news, and has learned that production on the video began last week. Of course, Timberlake likely got Fincher to sign on board because he starred as Sean Parker in the director’s 2010 film “The Social Network.”
This is a return to form for Fincher, who got his start in music videos. He is responsible for projects like Madonna‘s “Vogue,” Nine Inch Nails‘ “Only,” Aerosmith‘s “Janie’s Got A Gun” and Paula Abdul‘s “Forever Your Girl,” so it’s nice to see him dabbling in the medium once again. Hopefully Timberlake knows how lucky he is.
Timberlake’s album, “The 20/20 Experience,” goes on sale on March 19. Tickets for the first concert of his tour go on sale Feb. 2. at noon.
