    Joseph Fiennes to Play Michael Jackson in 9/11 Drama

    Joseph Fiennes has been cast as Michael Jackson in a new movie.


    Fiennes will play the late King of Pop alongside Brian Cox as Marlon Brando and Stockard Channing as Elizabeth Taylor, according to The Guardian.

    The film, entitled “Elizabeth, Michael, and Marlon,” will be based on a story first reported in Vanity Fair. A former employee of Jackson’s claims that the musician invited the legendary actors to see him perform in New York just before 9/11.

    But after the terrorist attacks that toppled the World Trade Center towers, the three allegedly rented a car and tried to drive back to California on their own, making it as far as Ohio.
    Fiennes is best known for his role in the 1998 Oscar darling “Shakespeare in Love.” He has also appeared in “American Horror Story” and the Dwayne Johnson action film “Hercules.”

    Elizabeth Taylor, Marlon Brando and Michael Jackson go on a road trip after Muslim jihadists attack the United States.

    Sounds like a brilliant idea.

    I hope this happens. The casting actually sounds excellent and the story could be really funny.

    They should hire a black actor and paint his face white because that makes sense.

    Fake story. Brando and Taylor would never fit in a car together.

    Will they have to darken Fiennes' skin for the role?
