‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Producer Is Set To Shoot A Michael Jackson Biopic
Michael Jackson‘s life is planned to turn into a new biopic called ‘Michael.’ The film will be co-produced by the successful producer of Queen’s biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody, Graham King, along with John Branca and John McClain.
Many rock stars have been encouraged to release their biopic to immortalize their legacy after the immense success of rock bands’ biographical movies. Undoubtedly, two of the most successful ones were 2019’s ‘The Dirt, ‘which portrayed the infamous lifestyle of Mötley Crüe, and 2018’s ‘Bohemian Rhapsody‘ that included late frontman Freddie Mercury’s career as well as Queen’s.
The King of Pop also had a music career that turned him into one of the most significant cultural figures of the 20th century. Since Jackson’s contributions to music, dance, and fashion, in addition to his publicized personal life, made him a global figure in popular culture, it was about time that a biopic about his legendary life came alive. Fortunately, a screenplay has already been written by John Logan, who has written scripts for films such as Genius, Skyfall, The Aviator, and Hugo.
According to Logan, the movie is set to provide Michael Jackson’s personal life and creative process. Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, said her son deeply loved movies and the magic of cinema from a young age. Therefore, the entire Jackson family is honored and proud to see their life story portrayed in a film.
Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson, said the following about the release:
“Ever since Michael was little, as a member of the Jackson 5, he loved the magic of cinema. As a family, we are honored to have our life story come alive on the big screen.”
While it was announced that the movie will include Jackson’s private life, the production team didn’t reflect on whether the child sexual abuse allegations against the late musician will be featured in ‘Michael.’ Although these accusations were widely documented on 2019’s ‘Leaving Neverland,’ there were left out of the Broadway production named ‘M.J.’
