ANTOINE FUQUA TO DIRECT MICHAEL JACKSON BIOPIC: According to Variety, Antoine Fuqua has been tapped to direct Michael, a Lionsgate production. The director said in a statement, “The first films of my career were music videos, and I still feel that combining film and music are a deep part of who I am. For me, there is no artist with the power, the charisma, and the sheer musical genius of Michael Jackson. I was influenced to make music videos by watching his work – the first Black artist to play in heavy rotation on MTV. His music and those images are part of my worldview, and the chance to tell his story on the screen alongside his music was irresistible.” The Jackson estate is onboard and has cleared the use of the icon's music. ‘Michael’ begins shooting this year.
