MJ: The Movie

You knew this was coming. ...The triumph and tradegy of Michael Jackson is in an undiscovered race to the big screen.

According to the LA Times, Sony Pictures has offered $50 million to host an MJ film, beating out Universal, Fox and Paramount (who's bids are unknown, but said to be smaller).** Sony has this upper hand because its music department owns Michael Jackson's solo performances, including the 1200+ hours filmed of Jackson's "This Is It" tour's rehearsals.

Some of the rehearsals were filmed in 3D, and were reported to be distributed via DVD and Blu-ray in late 2010. However, with the competition that Sony's commencing, MJ might have a spot in your local theater.
