Spike Lee financed his last movie, "Red Hook Summer," himself. We already know he's turned to Kickstarter for "The Newest Hottest Spike Lee Joint," and that Steven Soderbergh kicked in $10,000 for one of the top-tier awards on the first day. But what's it all about?
Although Lee seems reluctant to give away too many details, he took the time to chat with NextMovie about his mysterious project. "When I go to a movie, I want to be surprised," he said. "I don't want to know everything about it. And for that reason, that's where I'm trying to keep it to the chest, as much information about this film. Because this is the type of film where the audiences need to be surprised. They need to find discoveries."
However, what he did have to say has piqued our interest. "It's about people who are addicted to blood and how they are trying to cope with that, with this disease," Lee revealed. "I call it a psychological bloody thriller, with naked people. This is gonna be my most sensuous film. There will be more sexuality in this film in anything I've done, except -- no, this is gonna be on par with 'She's Gotta Have It.'"
Sorry, vampire fans; this joint, set to shoot in Brooklyn and feature "a young, fresh, talented cast," will have none of those types of bloodsuckers.
