AEG Live negotiates for Jackson documentary: report
NEW YORK (Reuters) - AEG Live, the company behind Michael Jackson's planned comeback in London, is negotiating with several Hollywood studios seeking a deal to release in movie theaters a documentary about the final days of the pop singer, the Wall Street journal said on its web site.
The Los Angeles-based concert promoter is hoping to recoup some of the $30 million it spent to stage a series of concerts Jackson was preparing for at the time of his death, and make up for some of the lost revenue from box-office receipts and sales of merchandise and food, the Journal said, citing sources familiar with the matter.
The Journal said a deal could be reached as soon as this week, citing the sources.
AEG Live officials could not immediately be reached for comment.
