Duran Duran made an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” and shared they were approached by Michael Jackson in 1984 about the idea of a collaboration.It never happened.
Jackson contacted Duran Duran about the same time their smash hit “The Reflex” was released. Nick Rhodes said, “I go to everyone, 'hey Michael Jackson called last night. Do you fancy maybe doing a song with him?" He recalled, "And they all went, 'nah.'”
The legendary group was also asked about the idea of having a biopic made about them someday. Simon Le Bon said, “I think every band would like to have a biopic made out of them.”
Simon added that he would love to see “young Brad Pitt” play him in a biopic movie.
