Spike Lee: Funded

on Friday, Aug. 16th

With just four days to go Spike Lee’s Kickstarter campaign for an untitled movie about addiction to blood (but it’s not a “Blacula” remake, he swears!) has cleared its goal of 1.25 million dollars.

It’s been a grind for the legendary director, but the success shows that staying nimble on your messaging feet and staying in the game every day can lead to success. Lee hasn’t even had to divulge that much more information about the film itself, although casting notes and promo images have illuminated some of his vision without divulging any surprises.
