Veteran movie maker Spike Lee is making a full documentary on the life of pop mega star Michael Jackson.

The documentary which does not yet have a title, 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 ‘Smooth criminal’.

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.

According to AP, Lee interviewed people ranging from Kanye West to Mariah Carey to L.A. Reid to Sheryl Crow, who was Jackson’s background singer on the ‘Bad’ tour.

Lee also plans to hold his now annual birthday tribute to Jackson in Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York, on Aug. 25; Jackson would have turned 54 this year
