Michael Jackson may go to court (for something else)

Director of the Thriller video is suing the pop star

Hot on the heels of the news that Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” is being developed as a Broadway musical, the singer is being sued by the man who directed the iconic video. Director John Landis (Animal House) claims that for the last few years, he hasn’t been getting the 50% share of “Thriller” profits that he’s entitled to by contract. Since the video hasn’t actually been making much money in the last few years, what with everybody viewing it for free on YouTube, Landis won’t get much money out of the lawsuit, but who can pass up an opportunity to embarrass Michael Jackson?
