"Director John Landis‘ was asked during his appearance at the BFI in London if the one-hour documentary The Making of Michael Jackson’s Thriller would ever be released on DVD or Blu-ray. CHUD reports that the director confirmed that the doc, along with the remastered longform video, would be coming soon. Apparently the lawsuits and royalty issues that had been holding up such a release have been resolved following the death of the pop star.
Landis also dropped the news that the owners of Jackson’s estate want to convert the music video into 3D. Landis is apparently fine with the idea even though he might not be a fan of the technology.
Also, Movieweb is reporting that Ian Halperin, author of 'Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson', is bringing his 88-minute documentary Gone Too Soon to the bigscreen. The documentary was created using 300 hours of footage shot from inside Michael Jackson’s camp. The film is set for a theatrical run in Canada and France, via Transit Medias, on June 25 — the first anniversary of Jackson’s death. In addition to the previously recorded video, the doc is said to include interviews with Jackson’s personal manager, chef, spiritual adviser, hairstylist, trainer, protective agent and attorney."
