Spike Lee directing doc about Michael Jackson
Filmmaker Spike Lee is working on a documentary about Michael Jackson's album Bad and its supporting world tour.
Rolling Stone reports that the Do The Right Thing director is in the final stages of post-production on the doc, which will be likely be released around September 18 to coincide with the album's 25th anniversary reissue, Bad 25, this fall.
The film will features 40 interviews with Jackson's collaborators, choreographers, musicians as well as contemporary stars such as rapper Kanye West and singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow, who was a back-up singer on the King of Pop's "Bad" tour.
"I’m more than just a huge fan of Michael Jackson," Lee said in a statement. "And having the chance to actually know him and work with him, I deeply care about his legacy."
Lee has previously directed music videos for Jackson's controversial single "They Don't Care About Us" and the posthumous track "This Is It."
