Get Ready for "Thriller" the Movie! 


You know a movie based on Michael Jackson's "Thriller" is bound to happen. Now, Deadline is reporting that GK Films is actively negotiating to acquire a package for a film "that is being fashioned around his groundbreaking hit song Thriller."

Kenny Ortega is attached to direct while "The Hangover" writer, Jeremy Garelick, is penning the screenplay.

Fox 2000, Mandate/Lionsgate, and Summit Entertainment are all interested in distributing the film which has a tag price of under $50 million.

Plot is being kept under wraps right now but it has something to do with the Vincent Price soliloquy in the song, and the town he grew up in.

So, it's safe to say we'll still see zombies and perhaps, vampires!
