Michael Jackson’s Estate Looking to Make an MJ Biopic

Michael Jackson’s Estate Looking to Make an MJ Biopic

Well, the fact that the Michael Jackson estate wants a Michael Jackson movie made was inevitable and at the least they waited and thought about the decision unlike how quickly it was announced about a Steve Jobs biopic.

Given all the fame and controversy Michael Jackson had throughout the years and the recent decision from the Dr. Conrad Murray trial where he was found guilty, Variety is reporting that Michael Jackson’s estate wants to a King of Pop biopic.

With Dr. Conrad Murray’s involuntary manslaughter trial now over, John Branca, the executor of the Jackson estate, has approached Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock’s Montecito Picture Company about the possibility of producing and financing a Jackson biopic. Project would only cover certain periods of the late singer’s life.

Pollock confirmed that the two sides are engaged in early talks but cautioned that there is no deal in place.

The estate is currently focused on Cirque du Soleil’s “Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour,” so there is no rush to get the movie into production.

What do you guys think? Who would you like to see playing Michael Jackson on the big screen?
