According Variety, Spike Lee is set to shoot a feature-length documentary about Michael Jordan. Lee told a Cannes Film Festival crowd that he hopes to bring the basketball legend to the fest with the film next year. The NBA is financing the documentary (hooray for Spike), with Lee's 40 Acres & a Mule Filmworks shingle producing. Expect extensive unseen footage shot by NBA cameras during the final two years in Jordan's career, the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons.
"Mike wants to come to Cannes, so hopefully we will be here next year," Lee said.
Guess if the NBA is footin' the bill, then it's all about basketball, huh? No divorce drama? No scandalous affairs? Shoot.
