Based on a recent report published by the Associated Press, Spike Lee is working to produce a documentary inspired by the late pop artist, Michael Jackson. The film director reassured everyone that the documentary will be unique because it will contain unseen footage of the King of Pop.
Three years have gone by since Michael Jackson passed away and yet, the late artist continues to make money even today. His close friend, Spike Lee told the press that he plans to produce a new documentary about the life of the King of Pop. Knowing that similar attempts have been made before, the film producer released a statement about the upcoming movie reassuring everyone that the documentary will present unknown information about the artist.
According to Spike Lee, the documentary will be totally different than the ones fans have seen before. Its uniqueness comes from the fact that Lee has combined unseen footage that the icon recorded during the making of his “Bad” album. The producer further added during his press conference on Monday that all this material was found in one of Michael Jackson’s vaults. Thus, Lee discovered 60 demos that Jackson made to his “Bad” record. Parts of the demos have also been included in the documentary, so viewers will have the possibility to listen to them for the first time.
Spike Lee explained reporters that he wanted to produce the documentary in order to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the “Bad” album that will be held on September 18th. On this occasion, Michael Jackson’s famous album will be rereleased together with other additional materials. Spike Lee did not provide a date for the release of his documentary, but it will probably be available on the market this fall to mark the said anniversary.
The movie will also include interviews with artists who have worked with Michael Jackson, as well as the singers who have been influenced by him. Kanye West, Mariah Carey and Sheryl Crow are some of the interpreters who released interviews for Spike Lee’s documentary.
