30th October 2009
The movie featuring Michael Jackson's final concert rehearsals will open on October 30, it has emerged.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Mitchell Beckloff approved a deal between the King Of Pop's estate, Columbia Pictures and concert promoter AEG Live to greenlight the project yesterday.
Columbia purchased the rights to the feature-length film, which is to be directed by High School Musical helmer Kenny Ortega, for $60 million (£35m).
This Is It will showcase the late singer rehearsing for his comeback concerts at London's O2 arena. The movie will be comprised from hundreds of hours of footage shot at the Staples Center during his preparation for the 50-date residency, Sky News reports.
The picture will also include behind-the-scenes interviews with Jackson's friends, while some parts will be shown in 3-D.
