Spike Lee just recently filmed a documentary on Kobe Bryant (“A Day In the Life of Kobe Bryant” for ESPN, and now he’s turning his camera lens toward Michael Jordan.
At the Cannes Film Festival, Variety reports that Lee, who was born in Atlanta and attended college here, is ready to make a feature-length documentary on the pro basketball great and wants to bring the film and its star to France for next year’s fest.
The documentary is expected to include previously unseen footage of Jordan during his last two pro seasons in 2001-02 and 2002-03, all shot by NBA cameras.
Lee, a two-time Oscar nominee, is at Cannes promoting his new World War II drama “Miracle at St. Anna,” about black soldiers in Italy challenged not only by the Fascists they are fighting but racist commanders.
