Joseph Fiennes To Play Michael Jackson In Weird 9/11 Movie

Joseph Fiennes, a British actor known for his role in “Shakespeare in Love,” will be playing Michael Jackson in a new film set in post 9/11 New York. 

The film is based on a 2011 Vanity Fair report titled “Liz Taylor, Michael Jackson, and Marlon Brando Star in . . . Escape from New York! ” where Michael Jackson, Liz Taylor (played by Stockard Channing) and Marlon Brando (played by Brian Cox) go on a road trip from New York to Ohio in the wake of the 9/11 attacks. According to screenwriter Neil Forsyth, the film, which is currently unnamed, is set to be released “soon.”

“I got the script the other day,” Joseph Fiennes told WENN. “It’s a comedy. It doesn’t poke mean fun but it’s a story, possibly urban legend … It’s a lovely thing about Michael’s relationship with Liz Taylor and Marlon Brando. It’s a fun, light-hearted tongue-in-cheek road trip of what celebrity of that kind is like. But also it’s rather beautiful and poignant about their relationships as well.”
