A dramedy is currently in the works for the British station Sky Arts, covering a road trip that Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor, and Marlon Brando took on September 11, 2001 after the terrorist attack in New York.
The three drove all the way to Ohio before finding alternate transportation and casting news to cover this unique trip is just hitting the news. To play MJ? Joseph Fiennes.
Fiennes will be joined by Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor and Brian Cox will play Marlon Brando.
Many fans are dismayed by the fact that Fiennes will be playing the late singer, but the proof will be in the pudding. We’ll have to wait to see how he performs in the role.
