Most movies with apes these days involve them talking over our planet, but this movie sounds just as wild!
A script about Michael Jackson told from the perspective of his chimp Bubbles will be made into a movie!
Community creator Dan Harmon will produce the film based on Isaac Adamson‘s original screenplay Bubbles — which topped the 2015 Black List!
And the best part is that the film will be made using stop-motion animation, so there will be no controversies about who is cast to play MJ.
IRL, Bubbles was a travel companion to the King of Pop in the 1980s, and even joined the singer on the Bad World Tour in Japan.
A description of the script teases quite the interesting plot:
“A baby chimp is adopted by pop star Michael Jackson. Narrating his own story, Bubbles the Chimp details his life within The King of Pop’s inner circle through the scandals that later rocked Jackson’s life and eventually led to Bubbles’ release.”
Sounds like this film will be absolutely bananas!
Will YOU be catching Bubbles when it hits theaters?
