War Brewing over MJ's 'Thriller' Musical

3/23/2010 5:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Michael JacksonMichael Jackson is coming to Broadway, whether his estate likes it or not ... at least that's what the most famous Broadway family says.

Nederlander Presentations has filed a creditor's claim, but it's not asking for money. Nederlander wants the probate judge to tell the executors they have no choice but to honor a contract Michael Jackson inked in 2008 for a musical stage play featuring music from "Thriller" and "Off the Wall."

The production hit a major road bump last year, when John Landis sued Michael Jackson, claiming MJ couldn't make a deal for the musical without his sign off. Landis directed "Thriller." That suit is pending.

Howard Weitzman, legal guru for the MJ estate, tells TMZ, "I've seen their creditor's claim. I don't agree with their request."

Thought that could be a possibility but of course was never sure. At any rate glad that you've been around and it's certainly true that they do make tempting targets and that it is most definitely a short drive!

Well, if Deb can befriend OhWell and that's acceptable among MJ fans then it should likewise be acceptable for the G.R. and Tellit to exchange cordialities...but then again...to some...you and I are viewed as one and the same person!

Yeah, changing those nics can be really enjoyable. Cuts the monotony....adds alittle spice to the day...aye?

Later G.R.

First of all, the man passed away...how the hell can anyone sue for a supposed deal, he died! Hello!

Secondly, the SONY deal = $250 MILLION dollars was to include MJ's personal catalog, hello, he owns the music, his music. morons!

According to your bible by quoting page and paragraph proves nothing. According to Michael Jackson he owned everything, including This Is It the song?

The book "Moonwalk" was written during the height of his fame when the media said "Here's Michael Jackson & here's the rest of them". At that time, MJ had no financial difficulty at all. He would not have lied about anything he said in this book. Anyways, according to my "bible" & yes, I believe it, that Branca was his attorney at the time & I'm sure he knew everything pertaining to the Thriller video. BTW does anyone know what's the status of the lawsuit. Did Landis win? or what's new? Just curious.

MJ I love u. By the age of 11, he already got 5 gold records, 14 yrs later, he set the world on fire with Thriller. MJ's music legacy will live on through his fans & I'm his loyal fan. P.S. Sony didn't know the origin of the TII song. Anka should be happy he's making $$$ from the song as MJ hadn't thought about releasing the song for over 25 yrs. Sad how things work in life. RIP MJ.

Too bad I wasn't there to see it when MJ walked on water, changed water into wine, and raised Lazarus from the dead, Daphne Lorincz. You MJ fanatics seem to hold him in such a Christ like regard then surely he must have done those things too.

Well, you surely regard him as something cuz you're a nut who is completely obsessed with him! What's your beef, freak.

Who cares what the h@ll a fan has to say or think about him. What's it to you. It ain't impacting your life in the least. So, get a life and worry about how people 'regard' you, you should only be so lucky.

FREAK HATER, WACKO nana, weirdo, rabid obsessed freak!
