The court papers, which were exclusively obtained by RadarOnline.com, claim that John Branca, John McClain and 10 other unnamed defendents have broken a contact the King of Pop signed in October 2008 when plans were set in stone to produce a Broadway musical based on his iconic hit, Thriller (referred to as ‘The Play’ in the documents).


Nederlander Productions alleges that Jackson penned new songs and musical compositions for the show but McClain and Branca have not handed over to them.
