Los Angeles - Michael Jackson's life may be turned into a movie.
The later singer's estate executor John Branca has had discussions with Ghostbusters director Ivan Reitman and Up in the Air producer Tom Pollock regarding the possibility of making a film about his life, now the trial of Dr Conrad Murray - who was found guilty of his involuntary manslaughter earlier this month - is over.
Pollock confirmed the talks about the picture, which are in the early stages, Variety reports.
It is believed the film would not cover all of Michael's life - which came to an abrupt end in June 2009 as a result of an overdose of Propofol - but instead focus on certain aspects and times, meaning some more controversial periods may be left out.
Michael himself was not afraid to try out acting during his career.
He took a starring role as the Scarecrow alongside Diana Ross in Wizard of Oz reimagining The Wiz - which was nominated for four Oscars - and appeared as a guest in Men in Black 2 and The Simpsons.
