Michael Jackson’s estate doesn’t seem to miss an opportunity to cash in on the King of Pop. So it comes as no big surprise that a year and a half after the legendary entertainer’s death, a biopic is already in the works.
John Branca, the executor of the Jackson estate, has approached Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock’s Montecito Picture Company about the possibility of producing and financing a Jackson biopic, Variety reports. Pollock confirmed that the two sides are engaged in early talks, the trade mag says.
So who should play Michael Jackson?
According to one of the world’s largest online betting site, Paddy Power, it doesn’t matter if you’re black or white (pun intended).
