Michael Jackson estate prepping film about very specific parts of Michael Jackson's life

With Michael Jackson’s wrathful spirit appeased by seeing Conrad Murray behind bars and all of the shackles of his makeup-streaked possessions scattered to the winds, Jackson is finally free to float up to pop star heaven and have endless sleepovers with the cherubs, which God said was totally cool with him. And now that he’s really gone, those left behind can get down to the inevitable biopic that will examine his life objectively, warts and all, and attempt to get at the real truth of the man behind the myth. But in the meantime, here’s this movie being shopped by the Jackson estate, who has recently entered early talks with Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock’s Montecito Picture Company about producing a Michael Jackson film, one that would “only cover certain periods of the late singer’s life.” Such as the year he recorded Thriller and when he debuted "The Moonwalk," and maybe a couple other scenes if there is time.
