MICHAEL JACKSON'S LIFE STORY the MOVIE

i don't know if someone had posted this topic but I am curious if any one of you here will like the idea to have Michael's life story be a movie. Will you ever like it? Will you ever want anybody to portray as MJ in the movie? Who do you want to portray MJ if ever they make a movie of his life story.. Will the media be fair on it? What do you think? What stage or era of MJ you want to see in the movie? Is it the time of his stardom or the time of his passing? I just wonder because i saw the making of Lovely Bones and it describes the leading character's heaven.. What will be MJs heaven looks like??

Mahalkita..my prayer partner back in the day. Where are you today? I would love to hear from you. ♥ ((((hugs))) ♥

i heard this news too right after Michael Jackson's death, they say the person will play MJ will be Johnny Depp... and im so happy for it because i idolized Johnny Depp and he will gonna play as MJ my all time love! so exiting, but until now, it is still a question mark... :I

It would be great if they make a film of his entire lifetime!!! I think the Jackson Kids will be good for each roles.. 3ts,.. and Omer Bhatti for Michael's role! lol! but that guy looks alot like michael!

oh Dartanian... we missed each other again...

M A H A L K I T A ..........????????

i like that line... MJ is in the limelight until the day he died... He really is!!!

OUPS!!!!!FINALLY I FOUND YOY GUYS!!!!!!!FIRST I 'LL MAKE YOU A BIG HUG........ YES CODRA THIS IS THE ONE OF THE REASON ..........YOU ARE IN MY MIND.....THE SECOND IS: DOES ANY PRODUCER MAKE AN ORIGINAL ,TRUTHFUL FILM FOR MICHAEL?????DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THE PRODUCER EXCIST????? I SAW BEFORE MANY DAYS, A MOVIE PLAYING ABOUT MICHAEL'S LIFE.....I DON'T EVEN REMEMBER THE ACTOR'S NAME......IT WAS HORRIBLE........I REALLY WANT TO SEE A TRUTHFUL MOVIE....BUT GIVE ME A TRUTHFUL PRODUCER WHO LOVES MICHAEL NOT FOR THE MONEY BUT FOR HIS SOUL......!!!!!!!!!

and like mugsysam said, i think this will happen at some point too...cause michael was a controversial person..everything about him raised the attention, he was always in the limelight, till the last day and even beyond that

i see dartanian is very categorical regarding the matter:)) well, maybe a solution would be to wait for michael's children to grow up and then ask for their opinion about how the movie should be:)

Pretty interesting views . Id love to read more,...and would love even more to see it happen.

sorry for bumping this but I really want to know what you feel about this because i want to watch and see something about MJs life since i never grew with him unlike everyone else here who had almost seen the every moment of MJs life as they were growing...

Thanks Mugs.. I like Johhny Depp too.. if ever hopefully he will take the role...
what about you MJs angels??? anyones opinion??

I like a lot of you have mixed emotions on this too. But here is the thing, I am pretty sure this will happen at some point. So having said that I would want the movie to involve people who really had Michael's best interest at heart and have the story of his life be as truthful and as objective as it can be. I would rather have someone that would do the best accurate job jump on this now, rather than have the Diane Diamonds of the world take a stab at it and make a mockery of Michael's life....

Now as far as who could play him.....

OK before anyone thinks I am nuts for this think about it after you read it....I think honestly Johnny Depp would be a terrific choice to play Michael as an adult. And I can't see Johnny Depp doing a movie about Michael that wasn't factual and true......I think that his facial structure is a lot like Michael's was at the end of his life, so with different make up and wigs to go throughout the story and be accurate with his appearances throughout his adult years I think it would work.

And as far as what part of the story to tell his life from, well I would say all of it really. Maybe focus more on the Thriller years to when he died, but if you're gonna do a movie about anyone's life, well I think for it to be truly about his life you gotta tell the whole story from beginning to end....

As far as the media being fair of it, you know actually if the movie was done correctly and was accurate and just told the story well I think they would be fair....at least the critics if that's what you mean....

i agree with all of you... but i love to watch something about MJs life maybe a DOCUMENTARY FILM will be nice as mycel suggested..

I dont really like the idea, because everything that they would put in that movie they would take out of context and he is no longer here to defend himself or tell it how it is!

I kind of have mixed feelings about this. I have a feeling that it's just a matter of time before they make one.

I will say No because Michael's life surrounding with so much lies and conspiracy . Its painful to watch those lies over and over again TII tells all the story already .

what do you all think??? any reactions??

I agree with you MJCUTE... They may not be fair to MJ.. Haven't seen the movie you girls talking about.. is it that awful???

My answer is a mixture of yes and no. First, I would say no, because I don't think that he would be portrayed fairly and a lot facts about him would be twisted and inaccurate. I still shudder when I think of that disasterous movie that Flex Alexander was in. He made Michael look he was retarded. The makeup and the acting was lousy. I would not pay to see garbage and Michael's memory be made a mockery of.

On the other hand, the only person that I think would do Michael justice in a movie would be Tyler Perry. Tyler has worked with Janet on two movies and they would work fabulously together on it. That would be the best shot at gettting the best product. I don't feel that it would happen right now or maybe never for Janet because the grief is too fresh and she may not want to people to make judgments about her brother's life.

what do you girls think about MJ having his true to life story in a movie??

I was reading about the Jackson Kids and Tito's son's told some really nice and funny stories about their "Uncle Doo Doo." (It's a name that Michael gave himself) Anyway, I'd like to see something like that, a documentary with interviews of Michael's family and friends. Things that show how sweet, funny and compassionate Michael was. One of the stories they shared is when they went on some of the Dangerous tours with MJ and how they got Michael to wave to them, while they were off stage, while he was singing Heal the World. And how Michael kept singing the wrong words to "You are not alone." If something were done like that I'd love it.

@dartanian....

greetngs. I think it would be very warm, and welcoming if you'd enter a thread and greet everyone in the discussion vs single out one or two members. this is one of the reasons, I choose not to partake in some discussions, not only is it hurtful,,its actually rude.

Peace Mahalkita & others....

BUMP♥♥♥

just as i thought nobody will fit as MJ eventhough they are just portraying the role of MJ they will be criticized a lot. He is indeed a superior genius when it comes to music. and the truth is in the movie or if you make someones life a movie it is not always the real thing maybe 70% of it are already made up or 50% of it. And the media will surely not be fair. And if ever they show the whole truth the media will deny it and rate the movie very low... Well i don't wanna see the media scores again in making MJ the bad guy...
Thanks for you comment about the topic i love to hear your personal opinion about it that is why i post it...
But i want to see an MJ based story if they pick it up from MJ's autobiography book "MOONWALK"... it was written by MJ so it is 100% truth about him...

i don't like michael's life to be in a movie story, especially now that he is not around to check on things ... remember how perfectionist he is ........

i rather have a DOCUMENTARY FILM about his life, the earky gary indiana life to motowm J5, to Thriller, to This Is It .... but a documentary that will relive everything of Michael, his genius in the industry and most especially his being humanitarian

a documantary film that will reveal who the real michael is that most people especially the haters doesn't know, ... the truth about the allegations and his victory over this which he truly deserves

with interviews/point of views from michael's trusted closest friends and family, a documentary film that wil paint Michael Jackson in his colorful life, not the destorted one as painted by the rude media !

awww hi you guys!!! i miss you all--great topic kita!!!!

now i think this is a great idea--a real story about mj and HIS life, now it would be hard to say who could play him, i honestly think an unknown actor might work, but when it comes to mj you never know how the whole thing will work out, so myabe for now hollywood should just leave that idea alone, and we all know how ugly the media can be, but maybe since his passing they may let up a bit?? well im not holding my breath for that lol

love you guys!!!!!
