Bigtime Broadway producer James L. Nederlander has bought the rights to Michael Jackson's Thriller and Off The Wall albums with an eye toward making a Broadway musical based on the video that starred Jacko as a werewolf and a zombie.
"I love the idea of making Thriller a musical. Girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy has big secret, now what?" said Nederlander, who owns nine Broadway theaters.
"The Nederlanders and Michael Jackson represent live theater and musical excellence, so let the music begin," said Jacko spokesperson Tohme Tohme.
Jackson himself is not expected to star, nor has a date been set.
