Having secured the rights to bring the King of Pop's story and music to the big screen, Graham King recruits John Logan, with whom he worked together on 'The Aviator', to tackle the screenplay.

AceShowbiz - "Bohemian Rhapsody" producer Graham King has secured the rights to make the definitive film about pop icon Michael Jackson's life.

The King of Pop's estate bosses have granted King full access to Jackson's music and the mogul has recruited Oscar-nominated writer John Logan to tackle the screenplay.

King and Logan worked together on Martin Scorsese's "The Aviator" - a film about the life of Howard Hughes.

Jackson died in June, 2009, aged 50, but he continues to make headlines thanks to ongoing child molestation allegations, which came to light again in the documentary "Leaving Neverland". HBO bosses are still locked in a $100 million lawsuit over the 2019 film.

Meanwhile, King is also working on a new film about the Bee Gees.
