The project being supervised by the heirs of Michael Jackson, the American press wonders if his story will not be watered down, in particular the accusations of pedophilia which weighed against him, but this subject at the heart from the recent documentary Leaving Neverland is never mentioned in the ad.

“I first met the Jackson family in 1981 and feel very humbled to bring their legacy to the screen”, commented King. On the side of Lionsgate, the prospect of working with Graham “who has had some success telling iconic lives, from Bohemian Rhapsody at Ali is “packaging”. “Add John to the project and you couldn’t be in better hands!” Katherine Jackson, Michael’s mom, explained that “Ever since he was a kid, when he was a member of the Jackson 5, Michael had already loved the magic of cinema. As his family, we are happy to see our story come to life on screen.”
