Footage from Michael Jackson’s final rehearsals for his London concerts could be turned into a movie. Concert promoters AEG Live have over 100 hours of footage shot at the rehearsals that feature Jackson singing and dancing a variety of songs including “Thriller” and “Beat It” as well as Jackson in production meetings. The footage could also end up being used to create live albums and PPV specials. Some of the footage was also shot in HD.
The film would also likely include the 3D “mini-movies” that were created for the concerts. The mini-movies revolve around the “Thriller” and “Earth Song” themes, with AEG Live CEO Randy Phillips describing the “Thriller” mini-movie as “nine minutes of 3D insanity.”
