It has been announced that Lee is in the “final stages of post production” of the  documentary, which centres around the making and release of Bad and the subsequent world tour.

The documentary is part of the celebrations for the 25th anniversary of the release of Bad, and features more than 40 interviews with “confidants, choreographers, musicians and other collaborators” who worked with Jackson on the album.

It also includes interviews with modern stars about the legacy of the album, including Kanye West, Martin Scorcese, Mariah Carey, Cee Lo Green and Sheryl Crow (who was actually a back-up singer on the Bad tour).

Lee said about the project, “I’m more than just a huge fan of Michael Jackson, and 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.”

A deluxe edition of Bad will be released on September 18, which features three CDs, two collectible booklets, and a live DVD of the 1998 Wembley Stadium concert, which was attended by Princess Diana, Prince Charles and 72,000 other fans.
