Deets On Spike Lee's Michael Jackson Movie

| Filed under: Michael JacksonSamuel L. Jackson

Despite being disturbed after the passing of Michael Jackson, director Spike Lee is still trudging on with his film Brooklyn Loves You, Michael Jackson.

Samuel L. Jackson, who will mostly be the star, spoke about the upcoming film at a press conference saying Spike:

"was bent out of shape about Michael Jackson's death for a long time. (He was) depressed. I guess the depression set him into writing that story. He was disturbed by the death."

The film will be about people in Brooklyn who want to throw a concert for the King of Pop, which is what Spike did back in August for MJ's birthday.

Sam explained "the new gentrified people that live in the neighborhood (who) are worried about the kind of element that might be coming into the neighborhood."

Inneresting.

No word on when the film will be hitting the big screen, but we're sure there will be a lot of hype around it when the time comes.

Will U be seeing the flick???

    Spike's is alive!! I thought he got stomped on by an NBA player. Oh well, who cares?



  2. 2

    no
    i'm so sick of michael jackson



  3. 3

    Yeah Spike, jump right on that Michael train and ride it all the way to the bank.



  4. 4

    He looks like urkel!



  5. 5

    I'd rather see Spike's movie than Ian Halperin's "documentary". Spike also put together MJ's This is it video, which was very heartfelt so it should be interesting. Stay strong Spike, all of us MJ fans miss him a lot too!



  6. 6

    Don`t tell me; It`s going to be about how white people destroyed Michael and how they made his crazy and how they killed him even though his doctor was black



  7. 7

    I was also depressed when he died, especially cause he was MUDERED. RIP MJ, I love you 4-evaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

    Re: Naomid

    Yes, exactly the doctor was black. He's jus a fall guy, there are other people involved. People Michael started being against in the 90's. People have a lot to learn about MJ, they don't know half of the truth.



  9. 9

    spike is doing a pedophile movie? cool!



  10. 10

    i love MJ and spike lee so i'd see it!



  11. 11

    Oh gawd…all he hears id KACHING!!!!$$$$$$$$$$…..they made a Jackson movie that has been on VH1 a zillion times so who would care about anything Spike Lee puts out.



  12. 12

    Re: Amsterdamgirl – He wasnt MURDERED you moron!



  13. 13

    Hmm not sure if I would see it. If it doesn't have Michael in it I would see it, because I could not handle seeing someone else portraying him.



  14. 14

    Re: hamnip – hahahahaha!! Peds on prope.



  15. 15

    It's a 3-D movies for kids. You put the glasses on and it actually looks like he reaches out and touches your fancies



  16. 16

    heck yeah I will see it!



  17. 17

    Re: JoshuaMi11er – Haha my thoughts exactly!



  18. 18

    Awwww *tear* I for one am interested in seeing this film. Spike Lee worked closely with Michael and was able to see the wonderful person he was above all else.



  19. 19

    Re: hamnip – He is?? I hadn't heard about that one.. I'm sure if he did do such a movie, you would be more then interested in it. You hater's need to come up w/ something unique and truthful.



  20. 20

    Re: flora_tink – Did you realize who this post was about? I'm tired of ignorant people and that's why I try and stay as far away as possible from them. If your so "sick" of MJ, perhaps you should try my technique of staying away.



  21. 21

    Re: kissmyassobama – BTW that brilliant VHI film documents The Jackson 5 and not just Michael. If you have a problem w/ what movies VH1 decides to keep on rotation then perhaps you shouldn't tune into that station. Instead go to CNN and check out how hard Obama is working to help make that change.

    Re: bongo – Your ignorant punchlines need to be recycled now… Happy Earth Day



  23. 23


    geeeeez

    it's not even been a year yet, and this has been "director" is already
    to prostitute MJ's life story with his slanted view of what he assumes
    was MJ's life story…

    Pathetic.



  24. 24

    i share spikes pain..i will be seeing his movie.



  25. 25

    He's still alive?



  26. 26

    Hell yeah I would see it! And I know where Spike is coming from with "the new gentrified peeps in Brooklyn". I don't know what their problem is. Are they considering relocating the West Indian Day Parade from Eastern Parkway because they don't want to deal? Their parents/grandparents moved out of Brooklyn during the late 60's to 70's because they couldn't stand living with the minorities that moved in. So now that their children cannot afford Manhattan rentals, they've come to reclaim and change the rules again? I hope they realize that they are not dealing with the same Black folks their parents ran away from. These folks are West Indians, mostly Jamaicans and they are not exactly the kind of folks to roll ove and take shiz. In their absence, West Indians have build a mighty strong community in Brooklyn, owning businesses and, rolling by their synagogues every Labor Day, so they had better recognize. They still owned most of the buildings after the mass exodus, providing the Blacks with sub-living residences, and now that they have revised or re-bought these same residences to accommodate their children who cannot afford to live in Manhattan, they want to make noise? They better make room and try to get along with Black folks or I guarantee there will be another "Crown Heights Affair".

    Re: MJ fan59 – hey freedom of speech
    i can express my opinion as much as i please.
    at least i'm not trolling on this thread.
    perez asked if i would be tuning in and of course i gave my answer and opinion. not shunning you nor anyone else. that is it!



  28. 28

    Will U be seeing the flick???

    My answer is a Big: YES!!!!



  29. 29

    Re: flora_tink – I know you have the right to your own opinion and I have every right to reply to your opinion. My comment was just stating that I don't understand why certain people like you holler about being "sick" or "tired" of hearing about MJ yet you post comments on a MJ post.



  30. 30

    Spike don't do it man, its not worth the quick buck. I think we can all agree that at the very least michael jackson was, at the least, "questionable", around kids. I wouldn't associate myself with him as an artist I wouldn't stoop that low. Kid diddlers deserve to suffer, not get recognised for anything.



  31. 31

    Re: shittin_condoms – Only problem with your comment is he wasn't a "Kid diddler". Even a group of jurors believed he wasn't.



  32. 32

    Re: MJ fan59 – you obviously are. i know you are a michael jackson fan, but sometimes you have to face the fact that EVERYONE IS NOT GOING TO LIKE WHAT YOU ARE LIKING!
    perez asked if i would be tuning in and of course i gave my answer and opinion. not shunning you nor anyone else. that is it!



  33. 33

    Re: flora_tink – Ok seems like you have me confused. I was not referencing the movie… I don't care whether you watch the movie or not. You said "I'm so sick of Michael Jackson" am I correct? My reply to that was why are you on a MJ post if you are "sick" of him? Where in my initial reply to you do you see me badgering you about not wanting to see this movie? Someone else said they more then likely wouldn't be seeing it either. That is fine. I don't care. When "This is It" was to be released and Perez made a post about that movie, people (some fans included) said they would not be watching that either and though I was excited about it I didn't give a rat's behind if the next person didn't want to see it. So, I was not criticizing you for your decision to watch this film. I was inquiring as to why your commenting on the post of a man that you are sick of hearing about.. and that is it!



  34. 34

    Re: MJ fan59 – b/c like i said for the third time, i was merely expressing my opinion.
    i'll give you another example. There are a lot of people on here that do not like perez and mock him yet they are on his very website; just merely to express their opinion. if you are going to knock me down, you're going to have knock everyone else too.



  35. 35

    Re: flora_tink – "if you are going to knock me down, you're going to have knock everyone else too"

    You sound as if your feelings are hurt.. and FYI other comments made like yours regarding Michael also get the same inquiry as you received from not just myself but from others like me wondering the same thing. I don't care about Perez. Perez's fans however do inquire as to why the people who openly dislike or are "sick" of him come on his website though. If you don't believe me, go check for yourself. Perez is ignorant and says alot of wrong, hurtful, and off the wall things because that is what he choose to do as a career and though I disagree w/ 99.9% of some of the crazy things he says about people I do keep coming back on his site. But when I get "sick" of him, I will no longer go out of my way to come on his site..

    Re: MJ fan59 – on the contrary, i'm trying to get my point across but obviously, it isn't working.

    why are you on a MJ post if you are "sick" of him?

    i wanted to express my opinion that i am tired of him. and that is that.
    this doesn't have to be blown out of proportion. obviously you're not getting what i'm trying to say.
    and i'll leave it at that.

    thank you for entertaining me for the past few days! :P



  37. 37

    Re: flora_tinkRe: flora_tink – Just keep showing up on the post of a man that your sick of and i shall gladly "entertain" you some more.

    Re: flora_tink – I can't wait. I'm pratically moonwalking around my living room in excitement right now..

    Re: MJ fan59 – I can't wait. I'm pratically moonwalking around my living room in excitement right now.
