Michael Jackson‘s pet monkey Bubbles has caught the attention of Hollywood bosses who are to release a movie about his life.
Good news for fans of the animal below…
It’s an idea that fascinates me and one I want to develop further.Most people know I’m a huge Michael Jackson fan, so the main thing for me is to make sure it’s respectful of him and his legacy. I’m not interested in making a biopic; I want to focus on telling a story that blends fact and fantasy, about an animal trying to make sense of the world.
Taika Watiti had that to say about the movie which is to honour Bubbles’ life with help from the director Mark Gustafson.
This film is not about Michael Jackson because that’s not a story for me to tell — or a story I’d be comfortable telling — it’s about a chimpanzee’s fascinating journey through the complex jungle of human life. think animation is the only way to approach a story like this. I really loved Anomalisa because it was beautiful and authentic in its meditation on loneliness. I’m really excited to be working with Dan Harmon and Starburns as we share similar sensibilities and want to tell human stories in unique and artistic ways.
A premiere date is yet to be announced.
