Sure. This will happen. The same way Jackson became a big-time film producer. Oh, don’t you recallFebruary 2002? A surreal evening spent with Jackson and producer Raju Sharad Patel yielded the announcement in Variety that Neverland Entertainment had been formed, and that Jackson had invested between $15 million and $20 million in Mark Damon‘s MDP Worldwide, which is a production, international sales and distribution company.

You gotta love the guy – he no sooner cleans up a mess or two, than does he makes a fresh one.

At that 2002 evening soiree, Jackson said, “I promise you wonderful and fantastical things to come. I promise you wonderful entertainment.”

In this respect, Michael didn’t fail to deliver. Anything Jackson claims to be doing these days is always supremely entertaining, precisely because it’s fantasy.
