Michael Jackson Biopic Filmed In Canada

Published: 2004-05-11
Canada has become the film site for a new controversial Michael Jackson biopic. The unauthorized movie is currently being filmed in Calgary, AB, and will wrap up on May 28th. VH1 is the company that has sponsored the made-for-tv movie about the troubled star's life.

The film, tentatively titled 'Family Values', will span Jackson's life from his massive hit album 'Thriller', right on up till today portraying the ridiculed and possibly criminal man that he has become. Flex Alexander, a television actor, will play the coveted role of the self-proclaimed 'King of Pop'. Called in to direct the biopic is Allan Moyle who has been in charge of movies like 'Pump Up The Volume' and cult-classic 'Empire Records'. Following the lead of many American films, it was decided that the Jackson film would be shot in Canada. It seems we offer a cheap location for Americans, hopefully in a good way.

'Family Values' will premiere on Movie Central at the end of June. The creators of the film claim that the movie does not in any way judge Jackson and his life. The viewers of the film will have to judge whether or not the execs are telling the truth.
