Well, it looks like Spike Lee is busy. You've already learned today that the director has once again spoken out about the white-washing in Clint Eastwood's Flags of Our Fathers and Letters from Iwo Jima, and that he added the Coen brothers to the mix. He recently showed an 8-minute promo of Miracle at St. Anna to press and buyers at Cannes, and now he's already looking towards his next feature. Variety reports that it will be a documentary about the one and only Michael Jordan.

This project should get into gear pretty soon, because the director told Cannes press that he hopes to bring it to the fest next year: "Mike wants to come to Cannes, so hopefully we will be here next year." Unsurprisingly, the NBA is financing the documentary, and it will have a lot of unseen footage from NBA cameras during the last few years of Jordan's basketball career during the 2001-2002 and 2002-2003 seasons.

That suggests emphasis will be placed on the basketball superstar's later career, but it's really too early to tell. However, should Lee get this project on track, we won't have to wait too long to learn and see more.
