Spike Lee revisits Michael Jackson's "Bad" at Toronto Film Festival
(CBS/AP) LOS ANGELES - Music will be featured at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, with a Michael Jackson documentary from Spike Lee and a closing-night film featuring Vanessa Redgrave as a terminally ill choir singer.
Organizers announced Tuesday that Redgrave's "Song for Marion" will close next month's Toronto festival, which runs from Sept. 6 to 16 and is one of the key cinema gatherings that kick off Hollywood's fall movie lineup and awards season.
Lee's documentary "Bad 25" marks the 25th anniversary of Jackson's 1987 album "Bad." The film features footage shot by Jackson himself along with interviews with such stars and music producers as Mariah Carey, Sheryl Crow and L.A. Reid.
Last month, organizers announced that the festival will open with "Looper," starring Joseph-Gordon Levitt and Bruce Willis. The festival's lineup also includes Keira Knightley in "Anna Karenina," Ben Affleck's "Argo," Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix in Paul Thomas Anderson's "The Master" and many more films. The complete listing of films being shown can be found on the festival's website.
