A new Broadway musical based on the life of Michael Jackson is in the works.

According to Variety, Jackson’s estate and Columbia Live Stage have announced plans to develop a new, untitled musical that would premiere on Broadway in 2020.

From the pen of Lynn Nottage, the show would combine Jackson’s catalogue — a list of pop favorites that includes “Thriller,” “Smooth Criminal,” “Beat It,” and “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” – with choreography from Tony Award winner and contemporary ballet superstar Christopher Wheeldon (“An American in Paris”). Wheeldon would also direct.
