Michael Jackson biopic being discussed

A movie about the life of Michel Jackson could be on the cards.
Michael Jackson movie coming?
Michael Jackson is arguably the biggest popstar the world has ever seen with a life that has been one of the most intriguing in music history.

It comes as no surprise then that powerful forces within the music and movie business are discussing plans on producing a biopic of the star's fascinating life.

It will invariably chart his rise to fame as one of the Jackson 5 to global domination as a solo artist.

Variety revealed that Jackson's estate has entered into preliminary discussions with Tom Pollock and Ivan Reitman over the possibility of Montecito Picture Company producing the movie.

If the movie goes ahead its unsure how much freedom the moviemakers will have to look at Jackson's highs and lows, from all the controversy over his plastic surgery, his marriage to Elvis Presley's daughter and the various scandals that overshadowed his music.

It was recently revealed that a unseen documentary about the legendary singer and dancer is to be auctioned later this month.

Featuring footage of his 1993 mega Dangerous tour, it is said to be revealing.

Already given a reserve price of £4 million, it is expected to sell for a lot more.ADNFCR-2133-ID-801213508-ADNFCR Posted on 17 Nov 2011 15:16 to category : Band / Celebrity News
