About three months before his death, Michael Jackson committed to co-directing and financing a movie; an emotional drama about foster children and planned to get started as soon as he completed his London concerts. Writer and director, Bryan Michael Stroller said “Michael was very excited about and wanted his hands on everything, from working on screenplays to producing, to writing the music. However, he never showed any interest in acting“. Stroller and Michael had a long term friendship; 23 years to be exact. Michael also said, “He felt like he grew up as an orphan, like a foster kid, because he never was in one home, and that every hotel was like a different foster home to him“.
