Michael Jackson Movie Set To Come From Bohemian Rhapsody Producer

Michael Jackson Movie Set To Come From Bohemian Rhapsody Producer

A film focusing on the life of Michael Jackson is said to be in the works and it's coming from Graham King - who was responsible for the hugely successful Bohemian Rhapsody.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, King will work with the Michael Jackson estate which granted the producer the rights to the late singer's music.

The film will cover Jackson's entire life including his career highlights - beginning with The Jackson Five and following his rise as a solo artist. It will also touch on his legal battles that came off the back of allegations of child sex abuse.

LADbible has reached out to production company GK Films, Graham King's own firm which is said to be behind the creation of the film.

Earlier this year a controversial documentary was released which saw many viewers struggling to listen to sexual abuse claims that were made against Michael Jackson in the programme.

Leaving Neverland was a two part programme that aired on Channel 4 and followed the stories of Wade Robson and James Safechuck, who both claim to have been sexually abused by the late singer as children.

Following the documentary, Jackson was called 'a victim' by his former publicist Raymone Bain as she addressed reporters, saying that the Michael Jackson Legacy Foundation will 'preserve and defend his name while supporting the numerous organisations he supported in his life'.

She said: "Child molestation and paedophilia are serious and unacceptable, sick, psychotic behaviour. I consider myself a strong advocate for children.

"Not only am I appalled that at the beginning of this special year, we were all confronted with a biased documentary. If it were not Michael Jackson, would it be nominated for five Emmy Awards?"

She questioned the claims, saying 'it doesn't seem to matter' that the singer was acquitted of child molestation in 2005, adding: "Is this the order of the day now to wait until someone dies to destroy their image?

"That man, Michael Jackson, has been a victim since his death. It's time for it to stop. I believe that it's morally, ethically and legally wrong. But how much blame should the very estate, whose job is to preserve and protect Michael's legacy?"
