Michael Jackson movie

08.10.2009

Whatever happened to Michael Jackson? Nobody seems to talk about him any more. Someone should make a movie about that guy, the "King of Pop."

Oh wait, good news. Via Hollywood Reporter: Sony has secured the rights to release "This Is It," a film using footage of Michael Jackson's rehearsals for his "This Is It" tour.

Sony is paying concert promoter AEG Live and Jackson's estate $60 million for the footage, which will be presented in HD, with some sequences in 3D, when it hits theaters Oct. 30. The film is being directed by Kenny Ortega, who was directing the concert and who also helmed the "High School Musical" movies.

This is it. Whew.

Extra Tidbit: At this point, blithe sarcasm is really the only recourse. Except for profanity. And a tri-state murder spree, maybe. Not that it would get news coverage.

I think they need to start working a very in-depth documentary about him.
One that shows his true self. who he really was. remember folks, he was found innocent on all charges! MONEY IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL!
I heard this concert was one of the most complex shows ever, I can't wait to see this.

Yeah. But it was held up in legal entanglements. Now a judge has approved it. Praise the heavens.

im really done hearing about him

The Michael Jackson I loved died when he started messing around with little boys. I love the Thriller album as much as the next hypocrite who says they never stopped loving MJ but the shit is getting old. I hope they have little boys wherever you are Mikey. Kidding. Way to leach off of what's left of his legacy.

It's funny. I know the first few lines were you being sarcastic, but just as I read those I saw a Google Ad above, on the left, and then as I reloaded the page two new ads above, ALL related to Michael Jackson. Hehe.

That completely mundane statemnt aside, I think they should leave his legacy alone. The man was entertainment incarnate, despite whatever downsides he was accused of having. Metalcore fans, rockers, hip-hoppers, everyone loved or liked MJ in some way...so don't f**k up his stuff

Wait - wasn't it the anxiety and stress of them forcing him to do this tour that caused him to overdose on horse tranquilizer cocktails or whatever he was taking? Yeah, let's celebrate the man by documenting his tipping point into annihilation. Great idea, leeches.

I think this sounds kinda cool. Its better than rushing a biopic into production and gettin someone like Zac Efron to play him. I really like this idea. His personal life aside, the guy made some great music that will never be forgotten. I'll be there Oct 30 for sure.

Zac Efron actually appeals to me as a plasible actor to play him.

Really? Hmm.. i dunno, i just have personal issues with him. I want to like him and think he could be a good actor but the High School Musical stuff is still so fresh in my mind that i cant take him seriously. I'm willing to give him a chance if he breaks away from the family affair and does something a little more gritty but until that happens i wont see anything he's in.

The way I see it is the worst that's gonna happen is they'll perpetuate the rumor mill. But honestly, why should any who are not already predisposed to hating the man feel upset that they are cutting together raw footage of rehearsals for the planned comeback tour that never was?

Now, if I heard they'd already optioned his story for a biopic (knock on wood) then anger and resentment would be in due order.
