Vlad Tv: Lifetime is bringing a biopic centered around the final years of Michael Jackson’s life to television.
The A&E network station released a teaser for Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland, in anticipation of its May 29 premiere, this week. The film will be based on a book co-authored by a group of bodyguards who protected Michael in his last days, and much of the promo shows actors Chad L. Coleman and Sam Adegoke facing interrogation by feds suspecting their involvement in his death. Fans can also expect to get a glimpse into how Michael’s relationship with his children [Prince, Blanket, and Paris] shaped up prior to the fatal 2009 overdose that claimed his life.
Immediate reactions to the trailer had to do the striking resemblance the actor selected to play Michael bears. That could very well have to do with the fact that they may have seen him before. Longtime MJ impersonator Navi fills the role. Navi worked alongside Michael for years, as his hand-picked body double and press decoy.
Tell us what you think about the trailer. We got our Fetty Wap eye on this project.
