Michael Jackson bio spins off into documentary

Less than a year ago, Transit Media “ the latest venture from discredited Montreal businessman Pierre Turgeon “ hit the jackpot when it published a biography of Michael Jackson that appeared mere days after the King of Pop’s death. The book, titled Unmasked: The Final Years of Michael Jackson and written by journalist Ian Halperin, is now being turned into a documentary that will be released by Transit in Canada and France on June 25, the one-year anniversary of Jackson’s death. Variety reports:

Author-filmmaker Ian Halperin is behind Gone Too Soon, an 88-minute documentary about Jackson that is culled from 300 hours of footage shot inside the singer’s camp.


Footage in Gone Too Soon includes video and audio of Jackson shot before his death. It also includes interviews with Jackson’s personal manager, chef, spiritual adviser, hairstylist, trainer, protective agent, and attorney.
