For his first album in seven years, Justin Timberlake is going big.

The singer-actor has already roped in Jay-Z to lend his talents on this spring's The 20/20 Experience, and now he's enlisted an Oscar-nominated director to come aboard.

David Fincher will helm the video for "Suit & Tie", Experience's first single, The Playlist reported on Friday.

"Suit & Tie" re-teams Timberlake with the A-List director; the two previously collaborated on 2010's Facebook drama, The Social Network. Production reportedly began on the video last week, which will give audiences their first taste of Jay-Z and Timberlake's collaboration.

Fincher is no stranger to music videos; he got his start lensing spots for such singers as Madonna and Michael Jackson. "Suit & Tie" marks Fincher's first music video since "Obey" for Nine Inch Nails seven years ago.

The 20/20 Experience drops March 19, with the video expected to premiere prior to release.
