Katherine Jackson 'Planning Michael Movies'

MICHAEL JACKSON's mother KATHERINE is reportedly in negotiations to produce a number of movies documenting her late son's life.
The Jackson family matriarch is said to be teaming up with her new business partner Howard Mann, who collaborated on her recently-released coffee table book, for a series of films about the King of Pop.
Mann has allegedly paid millions of dollars to Jackson's former business partner Marc Schaffel for 26 hours of footage of the singer from his childhood to use in the movies.
The clips, along with Katherine's extensive home-video collection, will form the basis of the big-screen ventures, according to TMZ.com.
The movies won't be Jackson's first posthumous appearance in cinemas - his concert film This Is It was released last year (09) and has so far grossed more than $260 million (£173 million).
Katherine Jackson and Mann are also said to be negotiating record deals to release 273 unheard songs by the late singer.

KJ has a partner that is helping her pull these projects together. It certaintly is her right. I heard that she has not received any real money from the estate becuase she is names in lawsuits for past contract issues for cancelled concerts back inthe day.... I am not sure about the 273 songs because the estate may have dibs on those. Thay do not own KJ's film /video footage...Can they sue her to cease and desist.....grooooooannnn.......When will this madness end?

gayat1, WHERE DID YOU READ ABOUT KJ NOT RECEIVING ANY MONEY? Even if KJ didn't receive anything she should be getting something for the kids. So I'm sure that she's receiving something. I think the problem is that the money is being stretch out too thin. I'm going to give KJ props cause she's a mom & mothers have an obligations to care for their offsprings, but when does it stops. I think the way it worked was KJ got the money from MJ then KJ disbursed the cash to all who had their hands out amongs the family. # 1 culprits Alejandra & her 5 kids. The problem is reguardless what if she makes money off of this they can win it in the law suit as well as the profits from her book & anything that she makes a prpfit from. I don't understand the estate lawyers not giving her any $$$ unless there's a levy on her accounts. I don't know it doesn't make sense to me. gaygat1 please post the information so I can read more about it to get a better understanding of what going on with KJ's cash. thanks,
