A new documentary about Michael Jackson is well on the way, MJ fans. Film director Spike Lee is scheduled to premiere the documentary titled Bad 25 at the 2012 Venice Film Festival in Venice, Italy on August 29th. AllHipHop.com reported that Bad 25 was collaboratively created by Spike Lee, the Jackson Estate, and Sony Music.
The documentary release is in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the Bad album on September 18th. IndieWire reported that Bad 25 will drop in a “deluxe package featuring three CDs, two collectible booklets, and features the first-ever authorized DVD release of a concert from the record-breaking Bad tour.”
Spike Lee released a press statement saying:
“I’m more than just a huge fan of Michael Jackson. Having the chance to actually know him and work with him, I deeply care about his legacy. 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 long-awaited follow-up to Thriller, the best-selling album of all time, the short films, and the tour that may have never seen the light of day.”
