“We have the footage in this documentary that no one’s ever seen, stuff that Michael shot himself, behind-the-scenes stuff,” Lee told the Associated Press. “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.”
Lee’s currently untitled documentary is timed to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Jackson’s “Bad”. The album will be re-released on September 18 and will include a DVD and bonus material.
Spike also interviewed Kanye West, Mariah Carey, L.A. Reid, and Sheryl Crow, who was a background singer for Jackson during his Bad tour.
Lee’s documentary is due to hit theaters later this year, but so far no release date has been announced.
