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?

For those who thought it would never be appropriate to compare Justin Bieber with Michael Jackson, we have three words for you: never say never.

The 17-year old icon has set a new box office record with his first foray on to the big screen, surpassing the King of Pop in the process. Through yesterday, Bieber's Never Say Never has earned $72.2 million domestically, becoming the most successful concert-themed film of all-time in the United States.

Jackson's This Is It brought in $72.1 million.

Bieber will never catch MJ on a worldwide basis, however.

This Is It, which chronicled Jackson's final tour preparations prior to his June 2009 passing, has garnered an unfathomable $189.1 overseas. Bieber's biopic has only grossed $10.8 million outside America.

Another point of historical comparison: Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert Tour earned $5 million internationally in 2008 and $65 domestically.
