    I think it would be interesting if he documented the new songs on the second disc, like Don't Be Messin' Around. That would be great! (:

    Looks to be shaping up well. Hopefully we get plenty of info on the recording of Just Good Friends (and Get It) rather than some arbitrary, well-worn anecdotes, but I'm always confident with Stevie.

    "Spike Lee works on Michael Jackson documentary"




    Photo credit: AP | FILE - This Jan. 22, 2012 file photo shows director Spike Lee at the premiere of the film ""Red Hook Summer" at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah. Lee is working on a documentary about Michael Jackson's "Bad" album. Lee's documentary will be part a flood of material to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the "Bad" album, Jackson's follow-up to "Thriller" which included hits like the title track, "Smooth Criminal," "The Way You Make Me Feel" and more. The album is being re-released Sept.18 with additional tracks, a DVD and other bonus material; Lee's film is due to come out later this year, but no date has been set.

    NEW YORK - (AP) -- Spike Lee worked with Michael Jackson and considered him a friend, but the director says even he learned a lot combing through footage of the icon for a planned documentary about the singer's "Bad" album.

    Lee calls it a "treasure chest of findings."

    "We have footage in this documentary that no one's ever seen, stuff that Michael shot himself, behind-the-scenes stuff," he said in an interview Monday. "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."
    He added: "You don't have to be a Michael Jackson-head to enjoy this."

    Lee's documentary will be part of a flood of material to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the "Bad" album, Jackson's follow-up to "Thriller" that included hits like the title track, "Smooth Criminal," ''The Way You Make Me Feel" and more. The album is being rereleased Sept.18 with additional tracks, a DVD and other bonus material; Lee's film is due to come out later this year, but no date has been set.
    Besides Jackson's artistry, Lee said the documentary will show a more personal side of the late legend.
    "He had a great sense of humor, and he was funny -- so you'll see a lot of that stuff," he said.

    Lee interviewed people ranging from Kanye West to Mariah Carey to Sheryl Crow, who was Jackson's background singer on the "Bad" tour.
    "We really divided it into two things: Artists today who were influenced by Michael, and then people who worked side by side -- musicians, songwriters, technicians, engineers, people at the label, who were all committed to Michael, to the follow-up to the biggest record of all time, which still is 'Thriller.'"

    Besides the documentary, Lee also plans to hold his now annual birthday tribute to Jackson in Brooklyn, N.Y, on Aug. 25; Jackson would have turned 54 this year.
    "This year we're going to focus on the 'Bad' album, we're going to focus on the 25th anniversary, but at the same time we're going to play his full catalog, including the Jackson 5 and the Jacksons," he said. "It's going to be even bigger and better this year."

    Not the most exciting preview, but the calibre and interviewees look promising. I'm sure they will provide more insights, alongside exclusive footage of Mike, throughout the documentary.

    That preview is pretty decent. It just shows that even during filming Michael did things live. Like the 'Ohhh' Also the other angles, which are good to see too.

    This looks very promising.
