An upcoming film about Michael Jackson, Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando on a road trip away from New York right after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, titled Elizabeth, is in the works. Reportedly based on a true story, white actor Joseph Fiennes will star as Jackson in the film. He is best known for starring in Shakespeare in Love and his role in American Horror Story, and shares that the film will be a “fun, lighthearted, tongue-in-cheek road trip of what celebrity of that kind is like” and that “it’s rather beautiful and poignant about their relationships.” Learn more about the film here.
