With a reported budget of $150 million (some sources even suggesting $155 million), Michael is poised to be a cinematic spectacle. The hefty budget, justified by the need to secure rights to Jackson’s extensive catalog of music, underscores the studio’s commitment to delivering an authentic portrayal of the iconic artist’s life.

Directed by John Logan, the biopic features Jaafar Jackson, Michael Jackson’s real-life nephew, in the lead role. Jaafar’s portrayal is supported by a talented ensemble cast including Colman Domingo, Nia Long, Miles Teller, and Laura Harrier.

The film promises to go into both the triumphs and tragedies of Jackson’s life, offering an honest and comprehensive portrayal of the legendary performer.
