A new movie about Michael Jackson's trademark white glove starring comedy duo Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer will go into production next year.
The Glove received financial backing in 2018 with Tim Kirby directing but production on the movie was delayed.
However, in an interview the RHLSTP podcast with Richard Herring, Mortimer has confirmed that filming will begin in 2022.
"We’re filming it in March," he said. "He [Jackson] had a training glove and few people knew of it but it was what gave him his special powers to entrance the globe and a collector’s got it and we’re hoping to have a big star in it.
The film will star Mortimer and Reeves, with further cast to be announced.
The synopsis for The Glove reads, "A comedy road movie about two best friends in search of Michael Jackson’s mythical training glove.
"Vic and Bob are childhood friends who own a junk shop together where they both work and live. Profits are down and with their futures in jeopardy, they approach their obnoxious landlord to explain their rent problems. Rather than helping them, the unsavoury character gives them a choice: eviction, or locate for him a rare and unusual item… Michael Jackson’s training glove.
"What follows is a madcap road movie across Britain as they enter the world of strange collectables and celebrity memorabilia in search of the elusive glove."
