Michael Jackson Biopic Headed To The Big Screen With ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Producer / MJ Estate On Board

Published: Friday 22nd Nov 2019 by Sam

Michael Jackson is heading back to the big screen and in a major way.

For, it’s been announced that a biopic about the King of Pop is currently in the works and has the producer of Oscar winning ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ attached.

Details below…

Per Deadline, Graham King has been granted the rights from the Michael Jackson Estate to helm the movie about the late legend’s layered life.

And while the Estate are involved (and have cleared use of Jackson’s iconic songs), word is that it won’t be a safe-sanitized account, but rather a raw and rare insight into one of – if not the – most famous names in modern music history.

Three-time Oscar nominee John Logan has been tapped to write the script for the flick, which – upon completion of that process – will be shopped to studios.

The news comes as other Jackson related projects Moonwalk their way into production; this includes the Broadway bound ‘MJ The Musical’ – which this week announced Ephraim Sykes as its lead.

*************

We’re here for it.

The “Michael Jackson” narrative is one that’ll continue to fascinate generations to come and with the names above in the mix it’ll be intriguing to see what the latest chapter brings with it.

For many, ‘The Jacksons: An American Dream’ serves as the definitive MJ biopic. It’ll be interesting to see whether this snatches the baton.

      Don’t be an idiot. taylor swift doesn’t exist in context to Michael Jackson. Stop the nonsense.

      • Fanciest BISH November 22, 2019

        The woman who constantly sells a million copies first week in the streaming era(2014 to now). I’d say she’s really really close if not above.

      • Fanciest BISH November 22, 2019

      • Fancy BISH November 22, 2019

      Taylor Swift’s celebrity will NEVER be as big as Michael Jackson’s celebrity. It is not possible for any celebrity to become that big and famous anymore ever since social media.

      • Fanciest BISH November 22, 2019

        She has the numbers.
        The accolades.
        The acclaim.
        The tour grosses.
        Think again and harder.

        I bet you think Beyonce is instead???

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ?? November 22, 2019

        I am talking about celebrity. Michael was bigger than life. People bought his albums like they do light bulbs and this was during a time with lots of other huge celebrity competition (Madonna, Whitney Houston, The Beatles, etc). People were spending real money on his albums and singles not streaming freely and counting that as “sales” or paying pennies on the dollar for digital downloads like in today’s music climate. In the US, albums were $14 to $17 each and singles sold for $3 to $6 each in the 1980s and a lot more internationally. Taylor has no competition and she is doing great but to compare celebrity in the 2000s to the 1980s is ridiculously idiotic. Social media destroyed the possibility for stars to be as big as Michael Jackson was / is. Everyone wanted to be like Michael! You cannot say the same thing about Taylor! Why can’t you just worship and praise Taylor without pitting her against other artists? She has nothing to do with Michael Jackson. When people think of Michael Jackson they do not have to pit him against any other artists! That is how big he was / is! Michael is true definition of a superstar who was looked at as on a pedastal.

      • Fancy BISH November 22, 2019

        @Jasmine, you know Fanciest TRICK is Clarkson, right? This the same HOEE that’s obsessed with you and now is obsessed with me! ? Clarkson ALWAYS compares artists together, like with Camiltoe and Normani…here this heffa goes again comparing MJ with Tay Tay SMH…in what world? ? ?

      • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ? ? November 22, 2019

        Thanks Fancy. Every time i call IT out for having multiple troll accounts it starts arguing with itself. I strongly believe it works for TGJ to be so dedicated to this little site

      • Black Jasmine, The REAL Princess Jasmine Okurrr. November 23, 2019

      • Fancy BISH November 23, 2019

        @My homegirl Jasmine, just ignore IT ?

    • Kurtz November 23, 2019

      MJ had talent. Taylor swift can’t sing or dance and she isn’t a great writer like MJ was. “We are never ever ever getting back to gevaaaaa” ground breaking ?

  2. Sweetnothings78 November 22, 2019

    Peodo or not to peodo that is the question.

    • SMH November 22, 2019

      How to learn to spell should be the question you need to ask.

      • Hey you November 22, 2019

        @ SMH….???? Right!

  3. War November 22, 2019

    Guilty till proven innocent..

    • SMH November 22, 2019

      And you’ve proven that you’re just stupid.

  4. SMH November 22, 2019

    They can go ahead and keep this. Its juts gonna be yet another sensationalized fictional flick based off of the same tabloid headlines we’ve been seeing for the last 30 years. No thanks.

    • SMH November 22, 2019

      *just

  5. Clarksooon November 22, 2019

    Damn this will be a messy biopic

    If they include the pèdo accusations, people will complain

    If they don’t include the pèdo accusation, people will complain

    If the make him a sympathetic man , people will complain

    If they make him a villain, people will complain

    Michael is such a controversial figure.

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ?? November 22, 2019

      No he is not. Michael was a very kind human spirit and that is all they need to depict. The pedo accusations were nothing more than desperate money grabs! People see right through that. Anyone who does not see right through that is seeing what they want to see being he was found not guilty and the evidence does not lie. He was accused twice. The first time MJ fought the case for a year and a half before his tour insurance company paid that lawsuit off.because he knew he was not guilty and the evidence proved that. The second time he was accused it was after he had died and those allegations were dismissed in a court of law due to lack of evidence and the accusers purposely waiting until MJ had died to pursue a quick money grab.

    • ERIC November 22, 2019

      They can’t complain if the facts are told as they are. He was under investigation and his name was cleared. That’s it. There’s no way to mess that up. But you’re right…people will still complain because they want to believe something other than the proven truth.

  6. Clarksooon November 22, 2019

    Beyonce biopic gonna be so boring.

    The most interesting thing to ever happen in beyonce life is that solange jay z elevator beat down

    Beyonce so boring and too perfect

    Rihanna biopic gonna be fun as hell

    Chris brown beating her àss
    Nùde pictures leaking
    Almost getting dropped from her label
    Dating Chris brown after he beat her
    Giving chris brown an STD
    Dating leonardo DiCaprio
    Serving iconic looks at the met gala
    Doing drugs and smoking weed
    Fighting with her daddy

    • Fanciest BISH November 22, 2019

      LMAO spot on… Even a Katy Perry one sounds much better.Not her giving chris an STD?
      And I know the girl was in drugs during clapbackanna maybe a touch on that.

    • Fanciest BISH November 22, 2019

      But I think her backstabbing her childhood friends is interesting, the true Becky (still think it’s fabricated tho)… give Wendy and BET a script please…

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ?? November 22, 2019

      You sound stupid.

      Everyone in hollywood knows Leonardo DiCaprio is GAY. Rihanna did not date him. They were neighbors and friends.

    • ? Jasmine’s Grape Juice ?? November 22, 2019

      Bey is similar to Diana Ross. Has Diana ever had a biography movie? No so STFU! Who says Bey’s personal life has to be interesting? Your opinion does not count! Who says Bey has to have a biography movie while still living? Again your opinion does not count!

      MORON

      • Fanciest BISH November 22, 2019

  7. Lou-Andrew Rodriguez November 22, 2019

    • Clarksooon November 22, 2019

      Oscar nominated actress angela Bassett will never go near this mess.

      • Danny Bey November 23, 2019

        But she can make a cheap lifetime movie about Whitney but solely focus on her toxic marriage and drug use not long after she died? Ok.

  8. No Glory November 22, 2019

    AS deserved. They better not include the fake @ss child sh!t that was never ever proven. EVER. Y’all are just mad in the comments because not artist today can touch MJ in rock, pop or rnb. Not even in disco. The KANG
