Michael Jackson’s life will be explored in a biopic from the producer of Bohemian Rhapsody… 10 years after the King Of Pop was found dead
A movie revolving around the life of the late singer Michael Jackson is in the works.
Producer Graham King known for his film Bohemian Rhapsody about Queen’s Freddie Mercury has plans to bring the biopic to life, according to Variety. The project is still in the early stages of planning and has yet to lock in a studio or distributor.
The film is set to feature a ‘sanitized’ look at the King of Pop’s life who was accused of child abuse throughout his life and in the documentary, Leaving Neverland.
