‘Deadline, and the Hollywood Reporter’ said maker Graham King had taken the rights, including music, from Jackson’s home to make a movie about the life of the Thriller vocalist, whose inheritance has been discolored by claims of child abuse.
The motion picture is required to traverse Jackson’s adventure from youngster star to a worldwide global icon that finished when he passed on in 2009 at age 50 of an overdose from strong sleeping drugs only weeks before an arranged comeback concert.
Deadline, referring to anonymous sources, said the film “isn’t expected to be a cleaned rendering” of Jackson’s life.
Jackson was attempted and vindicated in 2005 on charges of sexual abuse of a 13-year-old kid. In 1994, he settled a sexual lawsuit concerning an additional 13-year-old kid.
Deadline said the content for the Jackson motion picture will be composed by John Logan, whose credits incorporate The Aviator. No casting, release date or motion picture studio was reported.
