Spike Lee’s Kickstarter project is off to a great start after shooting past the goal of $1,250,000 and now Lee is working on announcing the stars of his cast. A few weeks ago, Lee announced that Zaraah Abrahams would star as the female lead and today it looks like Stephen Tyrone Williams will co-star in the film as the leading male character.
Ladies and Gentleman Mr. Stephen Tyrone Williams has been offered the Lead MALE Role in my New Spike Lee Joint. I first saw the fresh face and abundance of Talent at The Broadway Opening of the late Nora Ephron’s LUCKY GUY starring Tom Hanks Directed by My Main Man George Wolfe. Stephen’s performance as Abner Louima was haunting. The Opening Night Audience held their collective captive breath as he retells the terror of being sodomized with a Billy Club by one of New York’s Finest. At the After Party, I found Stephen and told him how much I enjoyed his performance and God Willing One day we would be able to work together. Well, that day is here. Stephen Tyrone Williams is gonna do his THANG. And That’s The Bloody Truth Ruth.
We don’t know many details about the plot at this time, but with Lee involved it will certainly be interesting.
There is still one day left for people to back the project and after that window closes we can expect to learn more about Lee’s film that will apparently be about “human beings who are addicted to blood.”
