No, that's not the setup for the world's worst joke. It's an actual plot, for an actual movie, based on what's rumored to be a true story.
But wait, it gets weirder. In news unlikely to sit well with those protesting the lack of diversity at the Oscars (and Hollywood in general), The Guardian reports Michael Jackson will be played by Joseph Fiennes, a white man.
Fiennes, who starred in "Shakespeare in Love" and "American Horror Story" (the source of the above gif) will play alongside Brian Cox, who has been cast as Brando, and Stockard Channing, of "Grease" fame, as Liz Taylor.
"I got the script the other day,” Fiennes told WENN. “It’s a challenge. It’s a comedy. It doesn’t poke mean fun, but it’s a story, possibly urban legend, whereby Michael, Marlon Brando, and Liz Taylor were all together the day before 9/11 doing a concert. Airspace was shut down and they couldn’t get out and Michael had the bright idea to go to hire a car and drive."
