Michael Jackson: Details about 'last rehearsals' film emerge

Posted on

If a judge approves the deal, a full-length movie featuring the footage of Michael Jackson’s final rehearsals will be coming to a theater near you before long, according to the Associated Press. A Los Angeles probate judge has scheduled a hearing for Monday to see if Jackson’s mother, Katherine, has any objections to the project — which would likely include product tie-ins, merchandising, and possibly a director’s cut and special editions — going forward. The details were revealed as part of the more than 500 pages of documents related to Jackson’s estate that were made publicly available on Tuesday. In July, concert promoter AEG Live president Randy Phillips revealed the the company had more than 100 hours of footage from Jackson’s rehearsals for his 50 comeback concerts scheduled in London. According to the contract, Columbia Pictures paid $60 million for rights to the project.
