Michael Jackson's life may be turned into a movie.

The later singer's estate executor John Branca has had discussions with 'Ghostbusters' director Ivan Reitman and 'Up in the Air' producer Tom Pollock regarding the possibility of making a film about his life, now the trial of Dr. Conrad Murray - who was found guilty of his involuntary manslaughter earlier this month - is over.

Pollock confirmed the talks about the picture, which are in the early stages, Variety reports.

It is believed the film would not cover all of Michael's life - which came to an abrupt end in June 2009 as a result of an overdose of Propofol - but instead focus on certain aspects and times, meaning some more controversial periods may be left out.

Michael himself was not afraid to try out acting during his career.

He took a starring role as the Scarecrow alongside Diana Ross in 'Wizard Of Oz' reimagining 'The Wiz' - which was nominated for four Oscars - and appeared as a guest in 'Men In Black 2' and 'The Simpsons'.

(Noodles): I am 1 of the millions who appreciated Michael Jackson & his music & even if he (MJ) merely 'stood' on stage & we viewed through 'rose-tinted' glasses, SO WHAT? Much better than the 'blood-tinted' view 'some' may have via same (ie, Murray). Would you not also attatch 'wacky' to Murray? I mean-he's now actually emerging as such, how 'on cue' due to his now (all of a sudden) suicidal state - sorry-WACKY!! If you are not a fan of Michael's then refrain from 'WACKY' comments. Each to their own & all that, eh? Being a 'WACKY' fan of MJ is a pleasure, 'my selected' pleasure (& millions more). Michael has no say in matters, MICHAEL IS DEAD-and MICHAEL had no say on his death-bed, he was viewed through 'PROPOFOL TINTED GLASSES!!). keep the love......

YANNI54, you are absolutely correct as to Michael's children reading the garbage printed about their beloved Father but, lets get real, they (the children) will read more & more crap throughout their lives because where there is money to be made - lies will be created, be it the media or other members of Michael's 'friend's'. Look what that 'friend' (Murray) did? and I'm not just concentrating on the non-professional part: the bed-wetting/his voice, and even that of personal habits. Nothing will surprise me reading further 'NEWS' pertaining to Michael. Do you really believe a smoke screen can be cast over further 'news' emerging re Michael? his children no doubt are protected presently - but, eventually their Father's past cannot be hidden & I for one do not envy those innocent children - the spotlight will be upon them forever and for all the wrong reasons (bless them). I admire the Jackson family for their constant protection of the children and especially for Janet to take them on tour with her while the trial was active, but you know what? with the love installed within those children via their caring Father (when alive) they might just turn the other cheek and 'get on with it' and I sincerely hope so. Paris has a determined 'look' & she wont suffer fools easily -should a'one try (when she is older) & zoom in on her and her brothers she'll take no prisoners! The media are fed stories & will continue to print 'anything' relating to Michael - because Michael sells NEWS (dead or alive).

Peepsluv-I have decided to ignore the ignorance of people who because of what they are told (from the media etc.) choose to attack, complain, bitch, namecall, and whine about someone who has never done anything to them, nor have they never ever met, and about someone who would have only wanted good to come to everybodies life. Michael Jackson all of his life had to live under the scrutiny of the media and the people who chosed to dislike him for their own selfish reasons. Michael is gone now and people still are on blogs calling this man outside of his given name because it has become some sick level of stupidity or it gives them some sick sort of excitement. I can only hope his children do not read this hurtful garbage BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES THESE PEOPLE CAN HURT NOW. UNLESS THIS IS WHAT THEY WANT!
