“HALLELUJAH and can I get an AMEN? We have just wrapped The Principal Photography of The New Spike Lee Joint RED HOOK SUMMER. We at 40 Acres are committed to building upon our Body of Work. I send you all a deep and sincere heartfelt Thanks for your Love, Support, Prayers and Blessings from Wayback in Da Wayback. Peace and Love…”
Words from Mr Spike Lee, posted earlier today on 40 Acres.com. The post was accompanied by the photo you see above, which I think is hilarious :)
Recall this is the new feature film called Red Hook Summer, which he started shooting on the 11th of July. So a relatively short filming period of about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks.
Still no official synopsis; all we know is that Spike is reprising his role the role he played in Do The right Thing – aka Mookie – and the story centers on a dude from ATL who spends a summer in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn, NY.
At this rate, we could have our first look at the film soon, whether via still images, or even teaser clips.
I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what Spike has been cooking.
