Michael Jackson Biopic In the Works From ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ Producer

Well…this is bound to be controversial, to say the least. Since musician biopics continue to be all the rage, there’s now a Michel Jackson biopic in the works from Bohemian Rhapsody producer Graham King. While a biopic of Jackson isn’t a bad idea on its own, this one comes with a pretty major caveat: it has the approval of Jackson’s estate. That means two things: one is that the movie will be able to use Jackson’s songs. The other is that you can all but guarantee the film will sidestep the man...

When the Bohemian Rhapsody trailer dropped, the internet couldn’t help but notice that the trailer was missing one important thing: the director’s name. Well, maybe two things. But regardless, it was a little odd to leave out the name of the director, especially when the trailer for the Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic proudly boasted that the film came “from 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises.” Could it be that there was some contention as to whose name should go on the billing after origina...
