Michael Jackson's 26-year-old nephew, Jafar Jackson, will play the uncle in the biopic. The tape will be called Michael.
The film was directed by American Antoine Fuqua, known for the films “Teaching Day” and "Righteous". He announced the start of filming and shared the first shot from the set.
“It's very exciting to watch Jafar bring Michael to life. When I first met Jafar, I felt a strong spiritual connection, he imitates Michael with an innate naturalness and has great “chemistry” with a camera",– Fuqua shared his observations.
The script for the future biopic was written by John Logan, who previously worked on the 007: Skyfall Coordinates projects. The producer will be the talented Graham King, who worked on “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
The authors of the biopic claim that they do not intend to bypass the scandalous situations in the biopic about Michael Jackson.
