Johnny Depp is producing a musical event about the life of Michael Jackson that will be told from the perspective of the late singer’s famous sequin glove.
Playwright Julien Nitzberg wrote For The Glove: An Unauthorised Musical Fable About The life Of Michael Jackson, As Told By His Glove, which is described as a fresh, revisionist look at the strange forces that shaped Jackson and the scandals that bedevilled him.
Nitzberg told to a major TV network had asked him to write a film about Michael Jackson, but it pulled out after Nitzberg and the network could not agree about how to cover allegations of child abuse against the singer. Nitzberg had also proposed a solution about it saying that everything Michael Jackson has been accused of has been actually has been caused by his glove, which is actually an alien from the outer space and it feeds on a virgin boy. Everyone laughed and said to do it in the normal version.
The playwright turned down the TV network’s offer and decided to write the idea for the stage. Nitzberg began working with Johnny Depp’s production company, Infinitum Nihil, on a biopic of 1960’s one hit wonder Tiny Tim.
It is the latest project about the late pop star to enter into the production. Earlier this week, it was reported that Bohemian Rhapsody producer Graham King had acquired the rights to make a film about Michael Jackson, which is said to span his life from from child star to death.
The production of such biopics will be helpful for the youth of the new generations. The New Generations will know the true value of the rock and the pop music of the 90’s. Michael Jackson has always been the best singer of all time and I think his biopic deserves to be made for the public to watch.
