Ortega to stretch Thriller video to full-length movie

By | Published on Thursday 28 October 2010

Having made a heartfelt tribute to Michael Jackson with the ‘This Is It’ not-concert movie, director Kenny Ortega is set to make even more cash off the back of the deceased pop star with his next project. Um, I mean it’ll be another tribute.

In what is almost certainly the worst idea I’ve heard all week, Ortega is leading a project to make a full-length movie based on Jackson’s 1982 ‘Thriller’ music video. However, according to Deadline, talks are still underway to recruit a studio to fund the project, so it’s not actually happening yet. There is still time to stop it!
