After Freddie Mercury’s reincarnation on the big screens with ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, it is time for Michael Jackson’s. According to a report by Deadline, Bohemian Rhapsody producer Graham King has reportedly secured the rights to make a biopic about the life of the late king of pop. It also adds that the idea of bringing MJ on the big screens have also been given a green signal by singer’s estate.
Oscar-nominated writer John Logan will reportedly be writing the project and the biopic will encircle the life of MJ starting from his Jackson Five stardom, controversies surrounding his personal life regarding the alleged child sexual abuses which hit the lowest low with Dan Reed’s ‘Leaving Neverland’ to eventually his controversial death in June of 2009.
Graham, who is the man behind the Oscar winning biopic of Queen frontman, Freddie Mercury with John will reportedly be sharing the script before they set it to a studio. Graham, who owns production company GK Films brought an Oscar to the house with Bohemian Rhapsody starring Rami Malek.
The movie made nearly $1 billion (£760 million) and also won a total of four Oscars at the 91st Academy Awards, including Best Actor for the film’s leading star, Rami Malek, who portrayed Queen frontman Freddie Mercury.
