Filmmaker Spike Lee has been working on a documentary of a rather notable and controversial subject -- the late King of Pop, Michael Jackson -- and is reportedly putting the finishing touches on the project.
Featuring over 40 interviews with Jackson's confidants, choreographers, musicians, other collaborators as well as celebrities, including Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Cee Lo Green, Martin Scorsese and Sheryl Crow, the project focuses on Jackson's career around the time of 1987's BAD album and tour, which both rocked the globe. Described as a "coming-of-age" story about the rising superstar, the film's release will be timed with the 25th anniversary of the landmark album, which was released August 31, 1987. New special edition reissue BAD 25 packages, including additional tracks, a DVD and other bonus material, will be unleashed September 18. The film does not yet have an official title.
