Justin Timberlake's 'Suit & Tie' Video to Be Directed by David Fincher
The two had previously collaborated on the 2010 Best Picture nominee "The Social Network," in which Timberlake played Sean Parker.
The music video for Justin Timberlake's comeback single "Suit & Tie" (featuring Jay-Z) will be directed by David Fincher, the creator of films such as Seven, Fight Club and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, according to the Playlist.
Timberlake and Fincher previously collaborated on the 2010 Best Picture nominee The Social Network, in which the pop star played Sean Parker alongside Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield. A lyric video for "Suit & Tie" was released last week, and the Mar. 19 release date of Timberlake's third studio album, "The 20/20 Experience," was revealed in the clip.
After Timberlake was confirmed to perform at the Grammy Awards next Sunday (Feb. 10), the singer announced on Friday that he will be performing at the Palladium in Los Angeles that night as his first full-length solo show in years. Tickets to the show will go on sale on Saturday at noon PT.
Before he became an Oscar-nominated director, Fincher honed his skills as a music video director, creating classic clips for artists like Madonna, Billy Idol, Aerosmith and George Michael. He has not directed a music video since Nine Inch Nails' "Only" in 2005; Trent Reznor, the leader of Nine Inch Nails, co-created the score to The Social Network for Fincher.
THR previously reported that Timberlake will sport a Tom Ford suit in the video.
