Michael Jackson Documentary in the works from Spike Lee
|Jul 12 2012|
Director, producer and actor, Spike Lee is working on a documentary about Michael Jackson's Bad album which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year. According to Billboard, Lee says the footage was a "treasure chest of findings." Adding, "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." In honor of the 25th anniversary of Bad, the album is being re-released on September 18 and the set will include additional tracks, a DVD and bonus material. The documentary is due out later in the year, but no date has been set. Lee plans to host his annual birthday tribute in Jackson's honor on August 25 in Brooklyn, New York.
