Hey! Finally, the news about "Michael" is out ;D. Any news, I'll be posting.

‘Michael’ Cast: Who’s Who In The Michael Jackson Biopic

The Michael Jackson biopic movie Michael, being directed by Antoine Fuqua from a script by John Logan, has been ramping up on the casting front since Deadline first broke the story of the project in January 2023. The film is underway on production ahead of an April 18, 2025 release date via Lionsgate and Universal.

Casting for the film, which will focus on Jackson’s career highlights beginning with the days he fronted the Jackson 5 to becoming the world’s biggest star but also deal with the pedophile accusations that dogged his later years up to his death in 2009 at age 50, started at the beginning. when Fuqua and producer Graham King tapped Jackson’s nephew and Jermaine Jackson’s son Jaafar to portray him in the singer’s prime. Juliano Krue Valdi has been set as the young Michael.

Fuqua said he’s been “blown away” by Jaafar’s resemblance to the King of Pop, telling EW he “sounds like him, dances like him, sings. It’s really uncanny.”

Others now cast in the film include Colman Domingo and Nia Long as Jackson’s influential parents Joe and Katherine, with lots more key roles still to be filled.
