London (ANI): Michael Jackson's alleged lovechild will reportedly play the role of his father in a new movie. Omer Bhatti, claimed to be the singer"s fourth child, will resurrect the late King of Pop in the film mapping the star"s phenomenal rise to fame.
The 25-year-old has become a part of the Jackson family, and has been living with them since the sudden death of the singer on June 25. "The family is close to Omer, as Michael was. He is a fantastic performer and they would like him to play the adult Michael," the Sun quoted a friend as saying.
Jackson is believed to have told friends Norwegian Omer was his son from a one-night stand. Omer, who has worked as a Jackson impersonator, will reportedly star in the film that would focus on the Thriller hitmaker during his 20s, but before the child abuse controversy in 1993.
The source said: "Michael's story from childhood to the height of success is nothing short of astounding. It needs to be told and that's what his family want. The pal added: "The family feel fans would love to see a dramatic retelling. They want to cover his childhood and family life but focus on when his career went into overdrive."
