London: Late Michael Jackson`s mother Katherine is planning to produce a number of movies on her son`s life.

Katherine has reportedly teamed up with her new business partner Howard Mann, who collaborated on her recently-released coffee table book, for a series of films about the King of Pop.

Mann has allegedly paid millions of dollars to Jackson`s former business partner Marc Schaffel for 26 hours of footage of the singer from his childhood to use in the movies.

The clips, along with Katherine`s extensive home-video collection, will form the basis of the big-screen ventures, reports contactmusic.com.

Katherine and Mann are also said to be negotiating record deals to release 273 unheard songs by the late singer.
