Lifetime is expanding their resume as it pertains to biopics, and reportedly are working on a highly anticipated Michael Jackson film.

Via LA Times:

The same day a British television network nixed plans to air a dramatized depiction of a wild urban legend about Michael Jackson following a backlash, Lifetime announced it is prepping a biopic on the late King of Pop.

Based on a 2014 book from two of Jackson’s personal security guards, “Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland” (the film’s working title) will trace the singer’s final years.

Currently in pre-production, the film will begin shooting in Los Angeles in February.

“Searching for Neverland” is told through the lens of Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard, who worked as Jackson’s bodyguards.

It is further reported that the lead role will be filled by long time MJ impersonator, Navi, who was praised by Michael himself. Get into some of his work below.
