Michael Jackson is opening a Thriller casino, femalefirst.co.uk reports.

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. He’s also allegedly planning a three-year world tour, after his 50-date This Is It residency at London’s O2 arena ends in 2010.

Sources close to the superstar claim he is interested in any business endeavour that can help revive his flagging fortune.

Jackson is allegedly over £100 million ($178 million) in debt. He has been sued by dozens of former associates and was even forced to sell his beloved Neverland Ranch last year.

The star is expected to make as much money as he owes from his residency, which is due to start next month, but he may not be fit enough to perform.

Jackson has already postponed the first four concerts and is facing the prospect of delaying more, as he allegedly battles skin cancer.
