Da 5 Bloods: Spike Lee’s Next Film, Starring Chadwick Boseman

Oscar nominee Spike Lee has cast Chadwick Boseman in his next film, Da 5 Bloods.

Netflix is in talks to distribute the movie, with Delroy Lindo and Jean Reno also in negotiations to star.

Lee will write the film with Kevin Willmott, based on an original screenplay by Danny Bilson & Paul DeMeo, and rewrite by Matthew Billingsly.

Lee will also produce with Beatriz Levin & Lloyd Levin, and Jon Kilik.
The film follows Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle to find their lost innocence.

“To quote my brother Jay-Z from Da People’s Republic of Brooklyn ‘On to Da Next One,’” Lee said.

Production is set to begin next month once Lee’s Oscar campaign on “BlacKkKlansman” has officially wrapped up.

“Da 5 Bloods” would mark Lee’s first directing gig for Netflix as the streaming giant continues to draw high-profile talent.

He also exec-produces their TV adaptation of his film “She’s Gotta Have It.”

Netflix sought aggressively Lee, after “BlacKkKlansman” earned six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.
