*A documentary chronicling Michael Jackson’s final magazine cover shoots, including one for Ebony magazine, was acquired during the Cannes International Film Festival in France.
“Michael: The Last Photo Shoots” features interviews with renowned photographer Bruce Weber, who captured shots of the King of Pop in 2007 for the 25th anniversary re-release of “Thriller”; and celebrity photographer Matthew Rolston, who shot the late icon for Ebony when he sat down for his first U.S. magazine interview in over a decade the same year.
The film has been picked up by Los Angeles-based Lightning Entertainment, who will shop the project to distributors in the U.S.
Director Craig J. Williams also includes interviews with some of the singer’s closest friends and stylists.
Lightning Entertainment Executive Vice President and general manager Ken DuBow says, “For fans of Michael, and there are millions around the world, this documentary gives a rare behind-the-scenes look into his life, and access to those closest to him. It’s a powerful piece of work.”
