Sony Pictures has been accused of using stand-ins for Michael Jackson on the upcoming concert movie This Is It.

According to the News of the World, Michael’s father Joe and sister La Toya believe that the film company is “fooling” fans with the use of impersonators.

Joe, who has seen 12 minutes of the film, said: “This movie features body doubles, no doubt about it. I think people will tear this movie apart.”

La Toya’s business partner Jeffre Phillips added: “I see all these great movements in the trailers but I don’t believe most of those shots were Michael.

“He wasn’t well enough. I’ve seen clips where I even thought, ‘That’s not Michael’s voice’.” It’s very upsetting for La Toya.”

Navi Parasram, a 36-year-old Michael lookalike from Essex, claimed: “They asked me to do long shots, visuals, placements.”

Sony declined to comment to the newspaper.

I bet Sony is guilty of hiring stand in’s! They want to make as much money as they can off the back of Michael’s corpse and his grieving fans.

These people have no morals!  They would probably sell their own mothers if they thought they could make a profit.

  1. I won’t be going to see this movie. It looks like Sony just rushed to put this together! And I have a feeling the fans etc will be left disappointed.

    Sony used impersonators.. and probably only had a few shots of Michael.

  2. People are so desperate 4 anything MJ related and it’s just ridiculous. The movie, biography, seance(wth), the concert tour, all of which MJ has no part in personally. Who would attend an MJ concert without MJ? As 4 this movie, it’s not like ‘the life of MJ’ where u know in advance it’s actors, but another fraud. La Toya is not the best person to say and his dad 2, they have been doing the same since he passed. What’s to stop the rest. Smh

  3. I won’t be seeing this no where but on a download F’ Sony!!! I don’t like them anyway, won’t be giving them any of my hard earned $$$$$$$
    Humpf!

  4. I find it curious that no one made these claims at the red carpeted premier!! they had impersonators walking the carpet, they were probably the same ones that were in the movie… dmh with the big DUH!!!!
