Really, Spike?


Spike Lee has written School Daze part II but can't find anyone willing to fund the project. The new film focuses on the same college 25 years later and was set to star Kanye West and Alicia Keys.

I hope they just leave the film alone. It's good as it is. A real black film classic.

Maybe they wont fund it because they "Woke Up!" LOL But really, I love School Daze Hell it sent me to a black school, but ummmm NO! Move forward spike...don't go back. Plus nobody will ever be able to top Good and Bad Hair!

This can't be true. Spike can't be THAT desperate!

I dont understand why he cant get any backers?

They backed Soul Plane for God's sake!

I've heard this to be a rumor for awhile now. Since 2004. I don't know about this one. It'd be great to have a black college movie, but not under the "School Daze" title.

@solshine: All classics should be left alone as far as I'm concerned.

@dj: I know--a lot of people said it inspired them to go to a historically Black college, but somehow I get the feeling that Kanye and Alicia wouldn't come close...

@sergio: my thoughts exactly

@clnmike: not quite coonish enough I guess :-(

@awkward: I heard the rumors too, but this week was the first time I saw actual confirmation in print

Is it bad that I'm intrigued by this, and would actually like to see it happen??

Nooooo!! Are there no original ideas out there?!

Invisible Woman said...

@luvvie: maybe you can give him a few dollas to make it, haha :-)

I am intrigued too, but for probably all the wrong reasons

@bygbaby: I know...it took me a minute to process too--he could not be serious with that mess...you would think he would be above that.

@bhc: No.

Yea, Thanks for the heads up IW, as I sit here cleaning the VOMIT off my lap top...

WATCH US EXPLODE said...

Bad idea, IMHO.

I guess he's suddenly got sequel fever, with Inside Man 2, and now this.

Invisible Woman said...

@regina: lol!!!!

@wue: one is just as uneccesary as the other. is spike getting old and lazy?
