The project was written penned by Gladiator scribe John Logan. He previously teamed with Graham King on The Aviator.

John Branca and John McClain, the co-executors of the Michael Jackson estate, will also co-produce.

Here’s a plot summary: “Michael is set to be an in-depth portrayal of a complicated man who became the King of Pop. It will bring to life Jackson’s most iconic performances as it gives an informed insight into the entertainer’s artistic process and personal life.”

“I first met the Jackson family in 1981 and I’m humbled to bring their legacy to the big screen. Sitting at Dodger Stadium watching the Victory Tour, I could never have imagined that nearly 38 years later I would get the privilege to be a part of this film,” Graham King said.

Michael‘s mother Katherine Jackson also gave a statement: “Ever since Michael was little, as a member of The Jackson 5, he loved the magic of cinema. As a family, we are honored to have our life story come alive on the big screen.”

His sister, Janet Jackson, recently made headlines while discussing their relationship amid his rise to fame.
