Michael K. Williams Joins Cast Of Spike Lee’s Mysterious Blood Addiction Joint

Michael K. Williams Joins Cast Of Spike Lee's Mysterious Blood Addiction Joint

Ladies And Gentlemen, We Have Added A Great Talent To Our Stellar 2 Leads. My Main Man Brooklyn’s Finest, Michael K. Williams Has Joined The Cast Of My Newest Hottest Joint.

Words from Spike Lee, posted to his mystery project’s Kickstarter campaign page this afternoon, as he continues to shore-up his cast for his new mystery joint.

Michael K. Williams joins the previously announced Stephen Tyrone Williams (the film’s male lead) and Zaraah Abrahams (the film’s leading lady).

With less than a day to go until the end of the campaign, Spike has raised over $1.35 million, blowing past the $1.25 million he asked for. 

Needless to say, the next Spike Lee joint has been officially greenlit. A film’s going to be made; and, I must say, if anything, the acting should be strong, as both Williams men as well as Abrahams have demonstrated talent in previous work.

Also, Raphael Saadiq will compose the film’s soundtrack.

Stay tuned for word on who else will be involved in the project, both in front of and behind the camera. Who knows – maybe he’ll hire Bradford Young to shoot it!

The teaser poster follows below. It doesn’t reveal much, other than what we already know about the film’s focus on human beings addicted to blood (although it’s not a vampire movie).
