Michael Jackson Documentary Acquired At Cannes

A behind-the-scenes documentary detailing Michael Jackson's final magazine cover shoots has been acquired at the Cannes International Film Festival in France.

Michael: The Last Photo Shoots features interviews with renowned snapper Bruce Weber, who captured shots of the King of Pop in 2007 for the 25th anniversary re-release of Thriller, and celebrity photographer Matthew Rolston, who shot the late icon for African-American publication Ebony when he sat down for his first U.S. magazine interview in over a decade the same year.

The intimate film, directed by Craig J. Williams, also includes interviews with some of the singer's closest friends and stylists, and it has been picked up by bosses at Los Angeles-based Lightning Entertainment, who will shop the project to distributors in the U.S.

Executive Vice President and general manager Ken DuBow says, "For fans of Michael, and there are millions around the world, this documentary gives a rare behind-the-scenes look into his life, and access to those closest to him. It's a powerful piece of work."

The documentary news emerges days after the release of the superstar's new posthumous album Xscape, which features duets with Justin Timberlake and Mary J. Blige.

Jackson died in 2009, while he was rehearsing for his doomed This Is It comeback shows in London.
