According to Variety, the forthcoming movie, titled Michael, is being made with the blessing of the Michael Jackson estate.
“I’m humbled to bring their legacy to the big screen. Sitting at Dodger Stadium watching the Victory Tour, I could never have imagined that nearly 38 years later I would get the privilege to be a part of this film,” King said in a statement.
The late singer’s mother, Katherine Jackson also released a statement saying: “Ever since Michael was little, as a member of The Jackson 5, he loved the magic of cinema.”
“As a family, we are honoured to have our life story come alive on the big screen.”
