Not everyone is excited about the rumored biopic about the late George Michael. Recently, news swirled about “The White Lotus” star Theo James taking on the role of the former Wham! singer.
But Michael’s estate has come forward and lashed out at the production. “To all of George’s Lovelies… a story has been published stating that George Michael’s family has endorsed a so called ‘biopic’ about his life,” said George Michael Entertainment in a statement before denying they have approved anything.
News of this film caught fire after James recently commented on his excitement to play the “icon,” and a Daily Mail report that said the film’s script “is in the final stages and producers are looking for their man.”
Still, Michael’s estate claims they are completely unaware, saying: “We want to make it clear that there is no truth whatsoever in this story, we know nothing about this project and will not be endorsing it in any way.”
