Joseph Fiennes to Play Micheal Jackson in Future Untitled MovieJanuary 27, 2016
G98.7FM Entertainment News
English actor Joseph Fiennes is set to play legendary Michael Jackson (you read right, the legendary Micheal Jackson) in a fantastically yet alleged story about the legendary King of Pop goes on a road trip with friends Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando trying to escape New York City after the tragic events of 9/11.
The untitled project is apparently based on a Vanity Fair story that cites a former Jackson employee and alleges that following 9/11, when air travel to and from New York was canceled, the famous trio rented a car and attempted to drive to California.
Regardless of the story, Fiennes’ casting has sparked negative views over social media, with some pairing it with to Hollywood’s ongoing diversity problem (in which black actors have limited opportunities in the industry), while others are shocked that a white English actor had been cast to play one of the most successful black entertainers of all time.
