David Fincher to Direct Justin Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie” Music Video

     February 1, 2013


A Social Network reunion is in the making.  Though David Fincher famously made his feature directorial debut on Alien 3, the filmmaker first made a name for himself in the world of music videos.  He was responsible for a number of clips, including Madonna’s “Vogue” and “Express Yourself,” Billy Idol’s “Cradle of Love,” and Aerosmith’s “Janie’s Got a Gun.”  Now he’s wading back into that world to help herald the much-anticipated return of Justin Timberlake, as The Playlist reports that Fincher is directing the music video for Timberlake’s new single “Suit & Tie.”

Production on the spot actually began last week, and Jay-Z appears on the track as well so one assumes he’ll make an appearance in the video too.  This is Fincher’s first music video since helming Nine Inch Nails’ “Only,” and it’s hard to argue against another Fincher/Timberlake collaboration.  Hit the jump to listen to the song and to take a look at some of Fincher’s previous music video work.  Timberlake’s new album The 20/20 Experience will hit stores on March 19th.
