michael jackson's album bad

Hollywood filmmaker Spike Lee's documentary on late King of Pop Michael Jackson is in the final stages of post production. The behind-the-scenes project focuses on Jackson's ground-breaking album "Bad" and his world tour to celebrate the 25th anniversary of its release.

The documentary, being made in conjunction with the Estate of Michael Jackson and Sony Music, features over 40 interviews conducted personally by Lee with Jackson's confidants, choreographers, musicians and other collaborators.

Artistes like Kanye West, Mariah Carey, Cee Lo Green and Sheryl Crow, who was a backup singer on the "Bad" tour, have contributed to the documentary.

"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," Lee, who also directed both short films for Jackson's "They Don't Care About Us" in 1996, said in a statement.

"With this 'Bad' project, I was able to uncover just what made this such a huge, important coming of age in his career and unearth compelling stories surrounding the making of the album, the short films and the tour that may have never seen the light of day," added Lee.

Among the interviewees in the documentary are Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorcese, Joe Pytka and other filmmakers, who worked with Jackson to bring the stories in his songs to life on the screen through short films.

John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson said: "Spike Lee's genius as a storyteller combined with his passion and firsthand 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."

When released, "Bad" marked a milestone in Jackson's life as a performer, composer and producer. The album was number one around the world, and till date, it has generated over 45 million units in sales.
