The producers of a Thriller musical have convinced Michael Jackson to help develop it in an exclusive deal.
"Jackson will participate in every aspect of the creative process," the Nederland Organization, the owner of the musical's rights, said in a statement.
"The Nederlanders and Michael Jackson represent live theater and musical excellence," added the King of Pop's spokesman, Dr. Tohme Tohme, "So let the music begin."
Thriller is still considered the world's biggest selling album. The album's infamous music video cost $500,000 to make, about 10 times as much as most music videos in 1983. No word on when and where this version is set to hit the stage.
