The estate of Michael Jackson is trying to get a biopic about the late pop singer off the ground. The news comes just days after Dr. Conrad Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the King of Pop's death.

John Branca, the executor of Michael Jackson, is said to have approached Ivan Reitman and Tom Pollock's Montecito Picture Company to co-finance and produce this untitled biopic. Tom Pollock confirmed that early talks are ongoing, but that both sides are nowhere near a deal at this time.

Although it doesn't seem that a screenwriter has been attached yet, it is that said this biopic will only cover certain parts of Michael Jackson's life. A spokesperson for Michael Jackson's estate would not comment on the story.

A biopic on Michael Jackson's life would likely be a big draw at the box office. Michael Jackson's This Is It, released just four months after his death in 2009, raked in $261 million worldwide.
