Michael Jackson Biopic in the Works

by at . Comments

Michael Jackson's estate is looking to bring his life to the big screen.

With Dr. Conrad Murray's involuntary manslaughter conviction in the past, MJ's executors have approached Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock's Montecito Picture Company about the possibility of producing and financing a Jackson biopic.

The 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. A spokesman for Jackson's estate had no comment.

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

However, the fact that the estate is keen to pay tribute to the greatest entertainer of our time on the big screen should have Hollywood agents salivating.

Who do you think could play Michael Jackson on film?
