Who is Antoine Fuqua?
Antoine Fuqua started his career with music videos, and making films combined with music has always been a part of who he is as a director. Fuqua is well known for his works like Mayor of Kingstown, The Equalizer, The Resident, and Emancipation.
His background in combining music and film together will also help in bringing life to the movie. Michael Jackson has also been an inspiration for Fuqua as well. He says, “For me, there is no artist with the power, the charisma, and the sheer musical genius of Michael Jackson”.
Fuqua also adds that he was influenced to make music videos by watching the works of Michael Jackson who is the first Black artist to play in heavy rotation on MTV.
The works of Michael Jackson have always been a part of Fuqua’s world view and the chance to make the pop singer’s life into a movie alongside his music was irresistible for him.
With the perceptive vision of Antoine Fuqua and the script written by John Logan, the life of the 13 Grammy Award winner, Michael Jackson – the “King of Pop”, who left us in 2009 can be seen on the big screen.
