Graham King, whose previous producer credits include the Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, has secured rights from the Michael Jackson estate to make a movie about the late singer and Leaving Neverland subject.

King’s company GK Film, per a Deadline report, has tapped John Logan (Gladiator, Sweeney Todd, etc.) to write the script. At this time, a studio is not attached. The publication hears the untitled biopic will not be a “sanitized” take on Jackson’s story, opting instead to cover “his entire life.”

Logan and King previously collaborated on the critically revered Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator, among other projects. The Martin Scorsese-helmed film went on to bag five Academy Awards.

News of the MJ biopic, which has been given access to use the late singer’s music, arrives on the heels of word that the Broadway musical centered on Jackson had found its lead.

Hamilton and Ain’t Too Proud alum Ephraim Sykes will portray Jackson in MJ: The Musical, which will boast direction and choreography from Christopher Wheeldon.
