Spike Lee Directing A Michael Jackson Doco

A new documentary on Michael Jackson is in the final stages of post-production, announced yesterday by Academy Award nominated filmmaker Spike Lee. The 'joint' focuses on the pop singer's groundbreaking album Bad and the worldwide tour that followed its release.

Lee personally conducted more than 40 interviews for the documentary, speaking with Michael’s confidants, choreographers and musicians who collectively paint a picture of the “coming of age” project that was the Bad album.

The lasting influence of the album is captured through interviews with Martin Scorcese and Joe Pytka, as well as musicians Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Cee Lo Green and Sheryl Crow (who was a back-up singer on the Bad tour). Spike Lee has said Bad was an important time in Michael Jackson’s career, adding, “I’m more than just a huge fan of Michael Jackson, and having the chance to actually know him and work with him, I deeply care about his legacy.”

Co-executors of The Estate of Michael Jackson, John Branca and John McClain, said:

“Spike Lee’s genius as a storyteller combined with his passion and first-hand appreciation of Michael’s artistry makes him the logical filmmaker to tell the story of Bad. We are thrilled to be working with him on this unique project.

The third and final album collaboration for Jackson and Quincy Jones, Bad accelerated the King of Pop’s evolution as a performer, composer and producer. The album was #1 around the world, making history with five consecutive #1 singles on the Billboard chart, producing ten chart-topping singles. To date, the Bad album has generated over 45 Million units in sales.
