Lionsgate Picks Up Rights To Michael Jackson Biopic

Right off the heels of the Janet Jackson documentary, Lionsgate announced a new biopic about Michael Jackson.

The biopic will be produced by Graham King and GK Films.

The film is titled, "Michael".

Lionsgate picked up the rights for the film and will also work with co-executors of the Michael Jackson estate, John Branca and John McClain.

Branca and McClain will allow access to Michael's music for the project.

John Logan will write the screenplay for "Michael".

The biopic was announced back in 2019 but did not have a studio attached until now.

The film will give an in-depth portrayal of Michael Jackson and show his artistic process as well as his personal life.

The film will start with Michael's beginning as part of The Jackson 5 and go all the way to his death in 2009.
