“Definitely,” he said, “I have a script that's a mutherf*cker. I just gotta get the money for it.

I am so looking forward to the 'Off The Wall' documentary and 'Brooklyn Loves MJ' sounds amazing too. While I go back and forth regularly on which is my favorite album, 'Off The Wall' is pretty consistently my number 1.
