Michael Jordan

Spike Lee announced in Cannes on Monday that he is directing a feature-length documentary about Michael ‘Air’ Jordan, who some argue is the best pro-basketball player in history.

Lee revealed that he hopes to bring the documentary to next year’s Cannes Festival.

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.

Michael is just the latest sports star to get the documentary treatment – retired boxer Mike Tyson is currently in Cannes, where a film about him is screening.
