Spike Lee announced today that his documentary chronicling Michael Jackson’s Bad album is in the final stages of post-production.
The film, currently without a title or a release date, will serve to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the release of Bad, which marked a pivotal, post-Thriller turning point in Jackson’s career. It will also be the first film project of its kind to chronicle the album’s release, tour and videos. Interviews with key figures who worked closely with Jackson at the time will give an in-depth portrayal of the Bad era of his career.
Sept. 18 is also the release date for BAD 25, a deluxe reissue package including three CDs, two collectible booklets and an official DVD of the Wembley Stadium stop on the Bad tour.
Lee is working in conjunction with Legacy/Epic Records and the estate of Michael Jackson to release the film.
