Spike Lee is rounding out the cast of his upcoming Netflix drama "Da 5 Bloods" with alums from "The Wire" and his own "BlacKkKlansman."
Chadwick Boseman stars in the story of four African American vets who return to Vietnam. He'll be joined by Clarke Peters ("The Wire"), Isiah Whitlock Jr. ("The Wire," "BlacKkKlansman"), stage star and singer Norm Lewis, Mélanie Thierry ("The Zero Theorem") and Jasper Pääkkönen ("Vikings," "BlacKkKlansman").
Previously announced cast members include Jean Reno, Delroy Lindo, Jonathan Majors and Paul Walter Hauser.
The story follows the vets (Peters, Whitlock, Lewis, and Lindo) who are searching for the remains of their fallen squad leader (Boseman) and the promise of buried treasure. As they battle forces of man and nature, they're confronted by the lasting ravages of the immorality of the Vietnam War.
"Da 5 Bloods" marks Netflix’s fourth collaboration with Lee, who previously wrote and directed "She’s Gotta Have It," which is currently in post-production on its second season. Lee also directed Roger Guenveur Smith’s one man show "Rodney King" and produced the upcoming time travel movie "See You Yesterday."
