Spike Lee’s MJ Movie

5:31 am in Music by Jason Baskey

This year at TIFF, Spike Lee will premiere his documentary, Bad 25, which chronicles the making of one of the biggest pop albums of all time, Michael Jackson’s Bad. The project features interviews from Martin Scorsese, director of the “Bad” music video, as well with tons of other crew members, and even outsiders like Kanye West, Questlove, Sheryl Crow (back-up singer on the Bad tour), Cee-Lo Green and Mariah Carey. Having access to Jackson’s vault, Lee should be able to create something with a bit more depth than the concert doc This Is It. Check out this clip with “The Way You Make Me Feel” director, Joe Pykta and be sure to catch Bad 25 at TIFF!

The Toronto International Film Festival starts September 6th.
