​Plans are brewing in Hollywood for creating a version of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" -- the song, not the album -- as a full-length movie.

According to Deadline, a full-length film based on Michael Jackson's Thriller is currently being shopped around Hollywood. The film is based solely on the song and not the entire album, which is an important distinction, even though a zombie war over the affections of Billie Jean does have a certain appeal.

Kenny Ortega -- who directed 2009's This Is It, High School Musical and did the choreography for Dirty Dancing -- is set to direct, and the script is written by The Hangover scribe Jeremy Garelick. Plot is being kept under wraps, but reports point to the song's folklore, involving Vincent Price and the town he grew up in.
