Spike Lee, a friend and fan of Michael Jackson, will be producing a documentary on the deceased King of Pop. This documentary will focus on the production of Jackson’s***t album “Bad”. Lee’s documentary will feature songs that were never released on the album as well as footage shot by the star.
The film is set to debut in the same year as the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s “Bad” album but no date nor title has been set for the film yet. Jackson’s “Bad” album is being rereleased on September 18th, featuring a DVD, bonus materials and additional tracks.
Lee’s documentary promises to be a unique insight into Jackson’s experiences. The film will have original footage as well as some other bonus features to celebrate Michael Jackson’s life. In an interview Lee said, ”we have footage in this documentary that no one’s ever seen, stuff that Michael shot himself, behind-the-scenes stuff. We had complete access to the vaults of Michael Jackson. … He wrote 60 demos for the `Bad’ record. Only 11 made it. So we got to hear a lot of that stuff too, so it was just a great experience.”
The video will not only focus on Jackson himself, but it will also focus on the people who Jackson influenced in the music world. Kanye West and Mariah Carey were two of the many celebrities listed who will be interviewed for the documentary. The film will also feature interviews from people who worked directly with Jackson during the “Bad” tour.
Taking his devotion to celebrating the pop icon’s life, Spike Lee will now be hosting an annual birthday tribute to Jackson in Prospect Park. If he were still alive, Jackson would be turning 54 on August 25th.
