Agent Michael Jackson -- His Movie You Probably Didn't See! But I Found a Behind-the-Scenes Footage!
To my surprise, there was a campy 2005 film featuring the iconic Michael Jackson titled "Miss Castaway and the Island Girls." This is a product of the singer's association with B-movie director Bryan Michael Stoller. (Check Stoller's website right here)
Stoller has many interesting nuggets about Jackson's dabbling with the film industry. And he recently came forward with his story to The Hollywood Reporter (for an in-depth look at Stoller's revelations, click here).
Of course, Stoller is also marketing his video, audio, and photos featuring the late, great singer.
The director told THR, "He (Jackson) was very excited about making movies and wanted his hands on everything, from working on screenplays to producing, to writing the music."
And yes, one of their brilliant collaborations is the super-campy movie "Miss Castaway and the Island Girls" also featuring Eric Roberts.
Jackson made a cameo in the 2005 farce as Agent M.J. who rescues different characters arriving on a beam of light! Yes!
Why didn't you see the film? Well, it was a direct-to-DVD release that was sold briefly at Blockbuster stores.
Stoller further added that Jackson wasn't interested in making a blockbuster. "He wanted to do movies the Academy would like," the director added.
That explains the super-funky film "Miss Castaway and the Island Girls." And I've unearthed a behind the scenes footage of the movie. Upon watching this, I felt an odd mixture of creepiness and sadness.
See the behind the scenes footage right here.

Sam Raimi is set to direct "Warcraft," a live-action film based on the fantasy videogame "World of Warcraft."
But first, Raimi must finish his directing duties with "Spider-Man 4." And it will be quite a wait since the fourth installment is not going into production until early next year.
No scriptwriter is attached to the project yet, but "The Dark Knight" producer Charles Roven will be one of the brains behind "Warcraft."
Great pedigree! Hopefully it will be a great movie!

I kind of, sort of, like Comedy Central's "Drawn Together." It's a twisted cartoon spoofing MTV's "The Real World" and most pop culture icons like Betty Boop, Josie and the Pussycats, etc.
Well, Comedy Central just unveiled their plans to release a film based on the show that is slated to go direct-to-video sometime in 2010.
The plot will revolve around Foxxy, a mystery-solving musician in the vein of "Josie and the Pussycats," who suddenly realized that she and her fellow housemates can curse without being bleeped.
Is their show going to be canceled? Is it doomsday for the "Drawn Together" cast? Is their going to be more cartoon sex in the movie?
Comic-Con attendees will hear about the plan from Comedy Central tomorrow, Thursday.
