Lifetime Confirms New Michael Jackson Biopic
Lifetime Network recently announced that a new Michael Jackson biopic is in the works. The TV movie will be based on a 2014 book from two of Jackson’s personal security guards, “Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland” reports Essence Magazine.
The film will trace the singer’s final years. The film is currently in pre-production and will begin shooting next month, the LA Times reports.
Now we all know Lifetime is hit or miss with their biopics, so we’ll take a wait-and-see approach. The Aaliyah biopic, Aaliyah: Princess of R&B, was controversial from start to finish, but the Michel’le story, Surviving Compton: Dre, Suge & Michel’le, was actually quite good.
We hope Lifetime learned from this hot mess…
Will you be watching the MJ biopic or nah? Sound off below.
