No, we are not sh*tting you! The project for SkyArts is about a road trip that the King Of Pop took with besties Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando to escape New York after 9/11.

The wacky story was reported in a 2011 issue of Vanity Fair, and according to sources, the zany trio made it all the way to Ohio!

However, other sources discredit such a tale. According to Brando's former assistant, the actor stayed behind in New York.

According to Fiennes :

"It's a fun, lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek road trip of what celebrity of that kind is like. But also it's rather beautiful and poignant about their relationships."

Taylor will be played by Stockard Channing, while Brando will be played by Brian Cox. Neil Forsyth will write the script.

As bonkers as this idea sounds, we give it credit for originality! We mean, wow!
