Spike Lee Uses Kickstarter to Shed Da Sweet Blood of Jesus
Recently we attended a press day for Spike Lee's upcoming flick Oldboy with several other outlets, and Bloody Disgusting's Evan Dickson got Spike to speak about his latest Kickstarter project, which has already been filmed. Read on for details.
The film is called Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, and it's now complete with Broadway actor Stephen Tyrone Williams (Children of God) playing the lead. “It’s scary. Humorous. Bloody. Sexy,” said Lee, adding that the film uses blood as a “metaphor. As we all know, human beings have many addictions. Drugs, sex, alcohol, power, money, Air Jordans [laughs]. In this one they’re addicted to blood. We shot in New York, Martha’s Vineyard, and we’re editing now. We shot it in 16 days, and we were one day ahead of schedule.”
Look for more on this one soon!
