    HBO Passes On Spike Lee's 'Da Brick' Featuring 'Attack The Block' Star John Boyega

    While Spike Lee has conquered both the big and small screen with feature films and documentaries, when it comes to television series', he's had far less luck. In 2004 he tried to get "Sucker Free City" up over at Showtime, a series that would've chronicled the disparate groups ...

    Sundance Exclusive: Spike Lee Says ‘Brooklyn Loves MJ’ Might Be Next; Trio Of Biopics May Be Dead

    The talk of the slopes, cold huddled buses and inebriated parties so far at Sundance 2012 has arguably been Spike Lee’s latest film, “Red Hook Summer” (read our review here). Evidently a polarizing film (some seem to love it, some hate it; our reviewer dug it), it’s none...
