David Fincher will direct JT’s “Suit & Tie” video

Having previously worked together on Fincher’s 2010 flick, The Social Network, it seems JT has rung up a favour with Oscar-nominated film director David Fincher, who will now be directing the video clip for Timberlake’s “Suit & Tie”.

Fincher is no stranger to music videos, having previously directed video clips for Madonna, The Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson and Roy Orbison, as well as creating George Michael’s iconic “Freedom ’90” video clip featuring an ensemble of 90s supermodels (see below. Totally amazing).

The video that Fincher will create is also not to be confused with the “Suit & Tie” lyric video that was released late last month, intended to act as a kind of seat filler until the official video is released. For a taste of what the official video is likely to look like, you can check out these photos snapped on the LA set. To take a look at Timberlake mooching around in moody black and white/get excited for the video proper, watch the lyric video below.
