Principal Photography ended this morning on Spike Lee’s next Joint “Chiraq”. On his Instagram page, he posted pics of some of the set locations, stars in the film, and even some family members that worked on the set. On the tragic day, he even posted about the Charleston AME shootings.
As previously reported, the film, which we learned will be a comedy musical, is a retelling of the ancient Greek comedy “Lysistrata” – in short, the women of Greece refused to have sex with their husbands, all in an effort to bring an end to the Peloponnesian War, via the signing of a peace treaty. In Spike’s film, the story will center on a woman’s quest to end gang warfare in Chicago, likely via similar methods as used by Lysistrata; i.e., no sex for the brothas in the middle of the gang war, until the violence ends… and it all unfolds as a musical comedy.”
