Nia Long is the latest star to join the cast of Michael, as the Friday star has signed on to play a major part in the Michael Jackson biopic. The film is set to release on for April 18, 2025.

Long will play Katherine Jackson — the matriarch of the Jackson family and the wife of Joe Jackson, who will be played by Colman Domingo. The actress released a statement about the news, praising Katherine Jackson and noting that she is honored to portray the King of Pop‘s mother.

“Katherine Jackson is an incredible pillar of strength and grace for the entire Jackson family,” Long stated. “As a mother, she was selfless and endured forces beyond her control yet still managed to help build a legacy beyond measure. I am honored to bring her voice to the screen and share Michael Jackson’s story with audiences everywhere.”

“Nia has delivered iconic performances throughout her career,” Antoine Fuqua, the film’s director, said. “I’ve been a fan for a long time because her characters stay with you. I’m excited to now work alongside her as she pours all of that into Katherine Jackson: a woman who was the glue, the rock, and the heart of the Jackson family during its best and its most turbulent times.”

What will Michael be about?

“Michael will bring audiences a riveting and honest portrayal of the brilliant yet complicated man who became the King of Pop,” reads Michael‘s description. “The film presents his triumphs and tragedies on an epic, cinematic scale — from his human side and personal struggles to his undeniable creative genius, exemplified by his most iconic performances. As never before, audiences will experience an inside look into one of the most influential, trailblazing artists the world has ever known.”
