Jaafar Jackson 'Embodies' King Of Pop In First Look At 'Michael' Biopic

A first look photo from the upcoming Michael Jackson biopic shows his nephew Jaafar Jackson draped in one of the late super star's most iconic outfits.

It was photographed by Kevin Mazur, who followed Jackson with his camera all along the King Of Pop's career.

"When I walked onto the set, I felt like I'd gone back in time and I was walking into the stadium to shoot the tour. Seeing Jaafar perform, I thought, 'Wow, it is Michael,' " said Mazur.

He added, "The way he looks and acts, his mannerisms, everything - he's Michael Jackson. For anyone who didn't have the chance to see Michael perform live during his lifetime - this is how it was."

"With Jaafar, every look, every note, every dance move is Michael," said the film's co-producer Graham King. "He embodies Michael in a way that no other actor could."

Antoine Fuqua directs the film that chronicles the life and music of MJ.

He said, "We have assembled an incredible team of artists for this project - hair and makeup, costumes, cinematography, choreography, lighting, everything - and some who knew and worked with Michael are reuniting for this film."

Eminem To Co-Produce 'Stans' Documentary About Superfans

Eminem To Co-Produce 'Stans' Documentary About Superfans

Superstar rapper Eminem is set to co-produce Stans, a documentary about superfans.

According to Variety, Stans will arrive later this year, with the 15-time Grammy winner involved via his Shady Films, along with DIGA Studios and Hill District Media.

"Stan", which comes from a combination of the words "stalker" and "fan," is a slang term that Eminem coined with his 2000 megahit song "Stan" about an obsessive fan.

Stans will be directed by Steven Leckart, known for Challenger: The Final Flight, writer of What's My Name: Muhammad Ali and writer and executive producer of the Hulu series Legacy: True Story of the L.A. Lakers.

According to Variety, the film is a "revealing, edgy, and disarmingly personal journey into the world of superfandom, told through the lens of one of the world's most iconic and enduring artists, Eminem, and the fans that worship him."

Shady Films' Paul Rosenberg (Eminem's longtime manager) and Stuart Parr say, "'Stans' will be the opportunity for us to turn the camera around and ask the audience about being fans - and in some cases, fanatics. This is a study of the relationship between fanbase and artist through the lens of one of Eminem's most fascinating songs and one of the world's most important entertainers."
