Chadwick Boseman Joins Spike Lee’s ‘Da 5 Bloods’ At Netflix

This comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which reveals the director and star will team up for Da 5 Bloods, about Vietnam veterans who go back to the jungles of Southeast Asia to, as the report puts it, "find their lost innocence and put their broken selves back together".

'To quote my brother Jay-Z from Da People's Republic of Brooklyn "On to Da Next One,"' Lee said in a statement.

This project will be Lee's first feature film he's directed for Netflix, but he previously established a relationship with the streaming giant with the TV series She's Gotta Have It. BlacKkKlansman co-scribe Kevin Wilmott is writing the script with Lee.

Sources expect production to begin as early as next month once Lee's Oscar campaign on "BlacKkKlansman" has officially wrapped up. Lee will also produce with Beatriz Levin & Lloyd Levin, and Jon Kilik.
