Spike Lee in WWII

06.06.2007
Looks like Spike Lee is taking his long-discussed trip to Italy for a WWII movie about black soldiers fighting Germans in the Tuscany mountains.

Lee is moving forward with battle plans for MIRACLE AT ST. ANNA, based on author James McBride's book. The story follows members of the Army's 92nd Division of all-black soldiers, who were trapped in a Tuscan village and had to deal with racist superiors as well as the Nazis, who probably didn't like them much either.

Further prompted by a black veteran's complaint that Clint Eastwood's recent Iwo Jima movies neglected the black soldiers who fought there, Lee went about securing more international financing for his big-budget flick. I bet he can find a role for Denzel Washington in there somewhere. Or at least Chiwetel Ejiofor.
Extra Tidbit: Lee has considered a sequel to INSIDE MAN, which makes little sense to me.
