Director John Landis, will bring the new version to light, and from all of the chatter, it will likely be groundbreaking. Fun fact, Landis also co-wrote “Thriller.”
“All of the copies of Thriller out there now are duped and it used to drive me crazy. I’d been trying to get to the negative for a long time as the new digital technologies are amazing at restoring films. And Michael and I always intended for people to see Thriller in a movie theater. But we didn’t just restore Thriller. We enhanced it … like in that scene in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy and the others are being buffed and polished inside Emerald City.”
Though only 14-minutes, fans can expect every trick in the 3D world to be in full effect. John Branco, the co-executor of Michael Jackson’s estate, says that this film was coming, even before the King of Pop’s death.
“Michael was going to use 3D elements on the This Is It tour, so this is something Michael would have done. He would love this.”
