Author-filmmaker Ian Halperin ("Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson") is bringing his 88-minute documentary Gone Too Soon to the bigscreen, which is culled from 300 hours of footage shot inside Michael Jackson's camp.
According to Variety, the film is set for a theatrical run in Canada and France, via Transit Medias, on June 25 -- the first anniversary of Jackson's death.
Footage in Gone Too Soon includes video and audio of Jackson shot before his death. It also includes interviews with Jackson's personal manager, chef, spiritual adviser, hairstylist, trainer, protective agent and attorney.
According to the filmmakers, Jackson family members were not involved but are aware of the film. Family attorney Brian Oxman is among the interviewees.
Despite its depiction of the more scandalous aspects of Jackson's life, Halperin called the movie "a balanced tribute to the King of Pop."
"This is the film Michael and his fans deserve," Halperin said.
