Why Hasn't Spike Lee Made Any Movies Lately?

spike lee on why he hasnt made movies lately

Such a shame!

Last we heard about Spike Lee's big screen endeavors, he was planning to direct a movie about MJ's death called Brooklyn Loves You, Michael Jackson. That was all the way back in April '10 though, and we haven't really heard updates on that project since!

Now, Spike has opened up why he's been MIA from the big screen since 2008's Miracle at St. Anna. Here's what he had to say about it:

"I haven’t made a feature film in three years."

"Inside Man was my most successful film, but we can’t get the sequel made. And one thing Hollywood does well is sequels. The film’s not getting made. We tried many times. It’s not going to happen."

"First of all, what in this world does not revolve around money? But money is a big part of film, unlike a lot of other art forms."

This is kind of sad to hear! It would be one thing if Spike just hadn't been inspired lately, or if he'd been truly passionate about pursuing TV projects, but we're bummed to hear that he hasn't been making features because nobody will give him the $$$.

Come on, Hollywood! Don't you remember Do The Right Thing? This guy is capable of greatness! Let's give him some more opportunities.

Deets On Spike Lee's Michael Jackson Movie

Despite being disturbed after the passing of Michael Jackson, director Spike Lee is still trudging on with his film Brooklyn Loves You, Michael Jackson.

Samuel L. Jackson, who will mostly be the star, spoke about the upcoming film at a press conference saying Spike:

"was bent out of shape about Michael Jackson's death for a long time. (He was) depressed. I guess the depression set him into writing that story. He was disturbed by the death."

The film will be about people in Brooklyn who want to throw a concert for the King of Pop, which is what Spike did back in August for MJ's birthday.

Sam explained "the new gentrified people that live in the neighborhood (who) are worried about the kind of element that might be coming into the neighborhood."

Inneresting.

No word on when the film will be hitting the big screen, but we're sure there will be a lot of hype around it when the time comes.

Will U be seeing the flick???
