The movie would come all the elements of a major studio release: product tie-ins, merchandising and even a director's cut and special editions.

But that's only if a Los Angeles probate judge approves the deal by Monday. The judge has scheduled a hearing for Monday to see if Jackson's mother, Katherine, has any objections.

A redacted agreement filed on Friday and released on Tuesday details the film project. The agreement is between concert promoter AEG Live, one of Jackson's companies, Columbia Pictures and others.

It calls for the creation of a PG-rated movie, not to run more than 150 minutes.
