Just over 13 years after the death of Michael Jackson, it was recently announced that a biographical film will be made that will tell the life of the famous and iconic “king of pop”, a film that not only hopes to show the personal and singer, but will also explore the work and his musical career.
Although the details of what this new tape will show us are still completely unknown, so far, the only thing that is known is that the biopic of the American dancer and composer will be under the direction of the French Antoine Fuqua and will be produced by Graham King, famous for the hit film Bohemian Rhapsody.
With the American playwright John Logan in charge of the script, Kimberly Hardin as casting director and Lionsgate as distributor, the recordings of this new project are planned to begin in the course of 2023, so the tape already has the one who will be the protagonist and commissioned to embody Michael Jackson.
Through his Instagram account, Antoine Fuqua posted a photograph with which he announced that Jaafar Jackson, nephew of the singer of beat it, was chosen to give life to the “king of pop” in his biographical film. For his part, the nephew of the musical legend shared the same photograph. Also, he said he was honored by the opportunity to play his uncle.
I am humbled and honored to bring my Uncle Michael’s story to life. To all the fans around the world, I’ll see you soon.
It should be noted that the film that will bear the name Michael is authorized by the Jackson family, which is also involved in the film project to carry the story of the interpreter of thriller to the big screen.
Proof of this is that the son of Jermaine Jackson will bring the late singer to life not only because of the consanguineous factor, but also because of the dancing and singing skills that the 26-year-old boy has developed since he was 12 years old.
After making the protagonist of the story known, the project has become even more attractive, so those in charge of the biopic of the pop music star hope to meet the expectations of the public. In addition, they promise to represent even the darkest, murkiest and most compromising aspects in which Michael Jackson was involved.
