A Michael Jackson Movie Was Given The Go-Ahead



As if the recent flood of Michael Jackson footage—see: videos of him and his children to a horrifying clip of his hair catching on fire while filming a Pepsi commercial—wasn’t enough, a judge recently ruled in favor of the production of a movie stringing together snippets of his final rehearsals. Judge Mitchell Beckloff, of the Los Angeles Superior Court, gave his blessings to a deal between MJ’s estate, AEG Live, and Columbia Pictures, leading to the production of said film. Over 100 hours of footage will be sewn together to make this film, which, before it meets public scrutiny, will be approved by Jackson’s estate, ensuring it does nothing but flatter the late King of Pop. The film is scheduled to be finished late October, but an official release date has not yet been divulged. (Via Billboard).
