A new biopic entitled “Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland” is coming out soon, and the trailer is here! The film is based on a book written my Jackson’s bodyguards.
The man that plays Michael Jackson is a long time MJ impersonator, who was even hired by the King Of Pop as a body double. He says his goal is to give a fair and honest portrayal that Michael would be proud of.
The family of the late singer tells TMZ that this film, and another in production are unauthorized, therefore “they’re not allowed to use ANY of Michael’s materials … especially his music.
We’re told MJ’s estate is holding off on legal action for now, but if they hear anything like, oh let’s say “Billie Jean,” “Thriller,” “Beat It,” “Rock with You,” “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” or any of his hits … they’ll round up the lawyers.
The reason they’re not heading to court now? The estate reps haven’t seen the movies. ‘Searching for Neverland’ drops next week, though, so things could change by Monday.”
