This could be really big if done right.May 29, 2021 at 1:11 pm #1204278154
I’m not even entertaining some of the comments in this thread, but there are enough biopics and documentaries of Michael Jackson. There doesn’t need to be anymore. Pretty simple.February 18, 2022 at 8:00 pm #1204809018
This is a disaster in the making. The casting ALONE would be controversial as hell no matter what they do. And those allegations getting brought back up really did a number on his legacy. I think the only way to do an MJ biopic successfully is to narrow down the time frame to a very small part of his life, like the early 80s.

I know they couldn’t make this movie without the blessing of the Michael Jackson estate, family and kids…are they that desperate for money? You’d think they would finally leave this man alone but they want to drag him through the mud and use him for money even after death.February 19, 2022 at 7:16 am #1204809508
This is more than 1 Billion at the box office if The Weeknd is Michael JacksonFebruary 19, 2022 at 8:57 am #1204809684
The first and only actor that should be considered. Bruno Mars. He looks so much like younger MJ, he can sing, he can dance. I think he can do it!
This might be the most ridiculous thing i’ve ever read on Gold Derby. And thats saying A LOTFebruary 19, 2022 at 9:00 am #1204809688
Michael has had enough biopics. There doesn’t need to be anymore.February 19, 2022 at 9:01 am #1204809691
I don’t think anyone can touch Jackson in our lifetime. It’ll either be completely sanitised by his family or will be a witch-hunt. I don’t think there’d be any middle ground. And there would be controversy and a sh*tstorm whichever direction they went in.

Lol, some people here saying if he isn’t African American he isn’t black. African Americans aren’t even purely black either. I’d say Afro Caribbean’s are more “black.” tbh.February 19, 2022 at 10:09 am #1204809818
I cannot even think of who I would cast to play Michael Jackson in a biopic. Michael Jackson’s paler skin complexion as a result of his vitiligo is a very specific image to depict on film and I suppose I’m just very mistrustful that anyone is going to get that right or make it look accurate without it looking caricature-esque (lest we forget the horror of Joseph Fiennes playing him in Urban Myths…).

No one, because that fucking pedophile does not deserve a sanitizing biopic.February 19, 2022 at 12:28 pm #1204809913
Holy sh##. I must still be drunk, because I read “Michael Jordan – Dream Team.” And all this time I was thinking a basketball biopic. xDNot now
