Thriller Movie On The Way

Movie bosses are planning to realise MICHAEL JACKSON's dream of turning his hit THRILLER into a full-scale film project.
Choreographer Kenny Ortega recently revealed that Jackson had been in negotiations to bring his visionary video to the big screen in an epic movie before his tragic death in June last year (09).
Now Jackson's dream of seeing his creepy creation revamped for cinemas looks set to come true - a screenplay is in the works and Ortega has reportedly signed up to direct the project, according to Deadline.com.
The website reports the movie will be penned by The Hangover writer Jeremy Garelick and Thriller songwriter Rod Temperton is also involved.

Michael has topped the list of the highest earning deceased celebrities in the past year making 275K with his back catalog and merchandising deals. The film "This is It" also made 250K. His earnings were greater than the total combined earnings of the 12 other dead stars on Forbes magazine's list including Elvis, the Beatles and John Lennon. That's pretty impressive!
