Michael Jackson's "Thriller" Song to Become a Movie

Posted: October 27th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Michael JacksonSubmit Comment
Michael Jackson became the top-earning dead celebrity by taking in $275 million over the past year, but the money-making isn't about to slow down.

Deadline is reporting that Real Effects Entertainment has been shopping a film based on Jackson's "Thriller" song with Kenny Ortega (This Is It, High School Musical) attached to direct. GK Films (The Town, Edge of Darkness) is currently in active negotiations to acquire the package.

The plot is being kept a secret, but the film will have a budget of under $50 million and include the help of "Thriller" songwriter Rod Temperton. Jeremy Garelick (The Break-Up) will write the screenplay.

They're gonna use a guy involved with high school

I would say they should've filmed this while Michael was alive ... since he looked like a living zombie in the daylight ...

but hey! Dig up his rotting corpse, tie it to an intricate pulley system and you can have the King of the Moonwalk again in another movie ... sure his jaw will be hanging from one hinge, c*ckroaches and millipedes will be riddling his body like bullets through Tupac in Vegas, he will smell worse than Justin Beiber's underwear after he's had his period and he can's sing ... but at least you can bring your kids to the video shoot, with the confidence he can't molest the f*ckers ....

The plot is being kept a secret ? What the f*ck ? Let me guess, Bruce Willis comes in and saves the day by disabling a bomb, you motherf*ckers.

This sounds really stupid since the song and music video was based on old horror movies. What could the movie possibly be about.

Hopefully they'll include a Michael Jackson zombie cameo. They can just splice in footage from his molestation trial.

as for the topic, i'll stick with the music video...in the end, after this movie is released, i probably won't watch it and consider myself correct about the music video being more entertaining than the film itself

Wine, rufies, naked little boys and a dead Michael Jackson with something up his ass: just call it 'Weekend at Mikey's'.

@johnny_boy Although I'm not liking this as it seems too much of a cash in, Kenny Ortega co-directed all of Michael Jackson's solo concerts including This Is It (and of course made the rehearsal footage into a movie) so him directing it would make some sense. Not as much sense as getting John Landis to direct it though since HE DIRECTED THE ORIGINAL VIDEO!
