(FROM VARIETY) â€“
Spike Lee announced at Cannes on Monday (May 20) that he is directing a feature-length documentary about basketball superstar Michael Jordan, which he hopes to bring to next year’s Cannes Festival. The project will feature previously-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 worked together on a series of Nike TV commercials. Lee spoke to a Cannes crowd while showing an eight-minute preview of his upcoming WWII movie, Miracle at St. Anna, about four black soldiers in the U.S. Army’s 92nd Division who in 1944 were trapped in a Tuscan village and had to struggle with Nazis as well as their own racist commanders. Based the book by James McBride, Miracle will wrap shooting in July and be released in the U.S. on Oct. 10. (Variety)
