The first clip previewing Spinning Gold, a biopic about Casablanca Records founder Neil Bogart, features a live performance from KISS.

The biopic was first conceived in 1990. After several drafts, multiple castings and a decades-long search for the right director, the movie has finally arrived with Neil's son Tim Bogart directing the project.

"Born Neil Bogatz in the Brooklyn projects where he plotted his dreams and schemes to escape from poverty, Neil Bogart was my father — and it's taken me over twenty years to finally tell his story," Tim Bogart said of the project.

"And I know people say that all the time, but the first option on the film really was back in 1999," he added. "From there, through obstacles nearly as challenging as what my father faced in bringing Casablanca Records to the world, the obstacles in bringing this film to light were just as daunting."

The footage, premiered by Variety, captures a live performance by "Kiss" (a group of actors pretending to be the iconic band), while Bogart, played by Jeremy Jordan, watches from backstage.
