ON

Spike Lee will direct a feature-length documentary about Michael Jordan, he revealed at the Cannes Film Festival. He said he hopes to bring the basketball legend to the festival with the film next year.

The NBA is financing the doc, with Lee’s 40 Acres & a Mule Filmworks producing.

The Jordan film will include extensive unseen footage shot by NBA cameras during the final two years in Jordan’s career, the 2001-02 and 2002-03 seasons. Lee and Jordan previously collaborated on a series of Nike TV commercials.
