    Don't the same arguments about the casting as per the 'Fiennes' movie apply? There seems to be no outcry on twitter etc....

    Exclamation Michael Jackson Is Getting the Biopic Treatment

    Michael Jackson's life story is coming to TV.

    Lifetime, the network that brought the career journeys of Aaliyah and Toni Braxton to life with TV magic, has found its next subject in the late King of Pop.

    According to Deadline, the network confirmed the news during the 2017 Television Critics Association press tour, revealing the film's working title as Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland.

    Unlike the far removed production seen in the Aaliyah biopic, leading to harsh backlash, this film is set to be produced by Suzanne de Passe, who has intimately known the Jackson family for decades. She also produced the 1992 ABC miniseries, The Jacksons: An American Dream.

    Also, the lucky man who will fill Michael's glitter glove has been confirmed to be professional Michael Jackson tribute artist Navi. Though some consider casting an impersonator a questionable move, it may be seen as an upgrade from Joseph Fiennes, who was cast as the music legend in the now scrapped British TV project Urban Myths, which upset both MJ's fan base and family alike.

    The biopic is currently in the pre-production stages and does not yet have a solid premiere date.

    See the one rule MJ had for his biopic in the BET Breaks video, above.

    I wonder why they didn't get Ecass instead of Navi though.
    Between both of them he's the better look alike.
    Who knows though, maybe he just didn't want to be part of the hot mess that will most likely be this lifetime biopic (I just don't see it turning out good).

    Honestly, this might sound petty and dramatic to some of y'all but I wish this wasn't being made.
    I just don't see the need for an MJ biopic, let alone a chintzy lifetime one.

    It's TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE. They've recently decided to go into the Biopic business and compared the wonderful network biopics made back in the 80's and 90's, they're trash. They're shot on a shoestring budget, they have lousy scripts, wooden acting, and terrible directing.

    I had high hopes for this one, since Suzanne is involved. She was with the kids at Motown from Day One, and responsible for the excellent "American Dream" as well as "Motown 25" and other acclaimed TV movies.
    But casting Navi-horrendous idea. She needs to cast an ACTOR that gets the essence of Michael-not someone who looks like him with a ton of makeup on and some curly hair. And if she has to cast an impersonator, she should cast E. Cassanova-who looks like Michael even in his street clothes.

    She did a great job of casting Angela Bassett, Lawrence Hilton Jacobs, Billy Dee Williams, and Vanessa Williams (as her) because they could act their heads off.

    Concerning a biopic let's listen to a quote from the man himself…

    “I’m a great fan of art, I love Michelangelo, if I had the chance to talk to him or read about him I would want to know what inspired him to become who he is, the anatomy of his craftsmanship, not about who he went out with last night … what’ wrong with … I mean that’s what is important to me.”

    Yes wonder if Paris, Prince or TJ will react. They could dircectly reach out to DePasse. It will be really embrassing for her when Michaels kids do not agree with a documentation which theme is Michael Jackson as a father.

    I also think it's really bad timing to be making any kind of 'bio-pic' right now. It is likely to be broadcast sometime during the progress of the current ongoing 'complaints', and those who wish to take a negative view online will no doubt try to drown any positive aspects of the film. Better to wait until the complaint hearings are over, surely.

    Lifetime has already reached out to Prince and Paris for their interest in participating, and maybe they're considering it? Who knows?
