MICHAEL Jackson is opening a "Thriller" casino.

The 50-year-old singer is reportedly planning to launch the zombie-themed gambling den in Las Vegas next year.

He is also believed to be working on a new album, several films and a museum to house iconic items from his career.


Jackson is even hoping to launch a three-year world tour after his residency at London's O2 arena concludes in March 2010. Sources claim he is interested in any business endeavour that can help revive his flagging fortune.

Jackson is allegedly over R796million in debt. He has been sued by dozens of former associates and was even forced to sell his beloved Neverland Ranch last year.

He has already postponed four concerts as he allegedly battles skin cancer. - Sapa
