Stories of Michael Jackson’s various exploits have been told from many perspectives, but now an often ignored point of view will finally get its chance to be expressed: Bubbles, Jackson’s famous pet chimpanzee.
This movie, titled Bubbles, is actually on its way: The script, which was penned by Isaac Adamson, was just acquired by Andrew Kortschak’s End Cue and Dan Harmon’s Starburns Industries. The screenplay topped the 2015 Black List, a list of the best unproduced scripts of the year. On the list, the film’s premise was summarized, “A baby chimp is adopted by pop star Michael Jackson. Narrating his own story, Bubbles the Chimp details his life within The King of Pop’s inner circle through the scandals that later rocked Jackson’s life and eventually led to Bubbles’ release.”
The stop-motion film will be produced by Harmon and Kortschak and executive produced by Adamson and Lee Stobby.
