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.
