Spike Lee's Michael Jackson film near completion

  • Spike Lee has announced he has nearly completed a Michael Jackson documentary marking the 25th anniversary of the singer's Bad album.

    The director praised the footage he was given access to as a "treasure chest of findings".

    The film tells the story behind the 1987 album and the record-breaking world tour and short film music videos it led to. It is due to be released later this year.

    The documentary features 40 interviews with Jackson's confidants, choreographers, musicians and other collaborators.
