Well, this was pretty much inevitable.
Now that Dr. Conrad Murray's trial has ended, Jackson estate executor John Branca has approached Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock's Montecito Picture Company about putting together a Michael Jackson biopic.
If all goes according to plan, the project will reportedly "only cover certain periods of the late singer's life."
Pollock has confirmed that he IS in early talks with the Jackson estate, but no deal has been solidified…yet.
What do U think? Would U like to see an MJ biopic???

This is so rad!
Owners of Michael Jackson's former home, Neverland Ranch, are considering turning the estate into a music school for teens. Much like NYC's Julliard, the school would focus on teaching kids, rich and poor, to write and perform music.
The only two things that are getting in the way is whether or not Santa Barbara County will sign off on the project and whether the owners, Colony Capital, will be able to use Michael's name to promote the property.
The good news is that sources from the Michael Jackson estate have expressed interest, saying, "it's an interesting idea and we'd be open to it."
So neat! What do U think? Good or bad idea?
