Lost MJ Movie…Published by Clay Cane on Tuesday, July 28, 2009 at 12:00 am.
While there might be a Michael Jackson movie to hit theaters in the fall, another Michael Jackson movie has recently made its way to the internet. According to the HollywoodReporter.com:
“He was very excited about making movies and wanted his hands on everything, from working on screenplays to producing, to writing the music,” said B-movie producer, writer and director Bryan Michael Stoller of Jackson, who starred in the 1978 pic “The Wiz.” “However, he never showed any interest in acting,”
Three months before his death, Stoller says Jackson committed to co-directing and financing a movie — a poignant drama about foster children — and planned to get started as soon as he completed his London concerts.
It’s a small indie project that might not have exactly been getting a big studio rollout or a prime spot at Sundance. But like other posthumous revelations, the news sheds light on the wide-ranging, if often quirky, excursions the singer made when he wasn’t cultivating his career as a pop star.
