Spike Lee Returning To "Mookie"
Spike Lee is reprising his 'Mookie' character--the pizza delivery man at the center of Lee's epic 1989 film Do the Right Thing--in a new film called Red Hook Summer that has already begun production.
Do the Right Thing is arguably Spike's most acclaimed film and featured Public Enemy's classic anthem "Fight the Power."
Described as a story about an "adult from Atlanta who comes to spend the summer in the Red Hook section of Brooklyn, NY," the film was announced by Lee via Twitter.
“Wake Up. I been up since 430am. On the way to the set of THE NEW SPIKE LEE JOINT.Today is 1st Day of Shooting. Awwwwwwwwwwww Sheeeeeeeeeeeeet.”
Lee has also been announced as director of an upcoming remake of the famous South Korean film Oldboy.
