Earlier this week Spike Lee took to Kickstarter in the hope of raising $1.25 million USD for his next project. Speaking about the move, Lee said:
“With the current climate in The Hollywood Studio System it’s not an encouraging look for independent filmmakers. I’m not hating, just stating the facts. Super heroes, comic books, 3D special EFX, blowing up the planet nine times and fly through the air while transforming is not my thang. To me it’s not just that these films are being made but it seems like these are the only films getting made. To the studios it seems like every film must be a home run on a global scale, a tent pole enterprise, able to spin off sequel after sequel after sequel after sequel after sequel after sequel.”
Although he has not given much away about the film, we can tell from the pitch it will include plenty of sex and blood. Check out the video above and head over to Kickstarter if you want to see your name in the credits.
