Spike Lee is currently working on a brand new documentary full of unseen Michael Jackson footage. Much of the documentary footage is said to have been shot by Michael Jackson himself, from a first person point of view while behind the scenes at various events and interacting with loads of different people. Spike plans on releasing the documentary to honor the 25th anniversary of Michael's "Bad" album, although he doesn't have a set release date for the film just yet.
Spike released the following statement regarding the exclusive documentary footage:
"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. You don't have to be a Michael Jackson-head to enjoy this.
"He had a great sense of humor, and he was funny – so you'll see a lot of that stuff. We really divided it into two things: Artists today who were influenced by Michael, and then people who worked side by side – musicians, songwriters, technicians, engineers, people at the label, who were all committed to Michael, to the follow-up to the biggest record of all time, which still is 'Thriller.'"
