A quick update has come in regarding Spike Lee’s crowdfunded next flick, which could very well be a horror movie given the announced subject matter. Even though details are vague, Lee has cast his female lead.
According to Variety, British actress Zaraah Abrahams (pictured) has landed the female lead in Lee’s Kickstarter-funded film. Lee revealed the selection on his Kickstarter page, where he has raised 54% of the $1.25 million needed. He has 15 days left to meet the campaign goal, and of course he’ll make it because people are idiots and would like nothing more than to hand over their hard earned dollars to a wealthy and established filmmaker who’s very capable of coming up with his own revenue stream.
Lee has raised nearly half the funds from two pledge areas — $260,000 from 26 pledges of $10,000 each for a courtside seat and dinner with Lee at a New York Knicks home game and $65,000 (lucky them) from 13 pledges of $5,000 each for associate producer credit on the film (oh boy).
The mysterious “Spike Lee Joint” project centers on humans addicted to blood.
