spike-lee-school-daze-sequel

Are you ready for a new School Daze movie? Well guess what Spike Lee is ready to work on the sequel. This has been much awaited! 🙂
Spike Lee revealed to Black&Sexy TV:

“I had the script for ‘School Daze. But, what people have to understand is that it’s a contemporary version. So it’s the same school, Mission College, 25 years later,” explained Lee. “Hopefully I can get Laurence Fishburne to play Dap. He’ll be the president now of the school. And we would deal with issues around Historically Black Colleges today.”

Spike says the sequel will examine the same issues young college students faced in the late 80s and will also touch on new issues students face in college today, such as homophia and pledging a fraternity/sorority.

Spike Lee ready to honor MJ

Spike Lee has decided it’s time to release a documentary as we come upon the 25th anniversary of Michael Jackson’s Bad album.

He wants to celebrate his legendary friend and pop culture.

Lee says,“We have footage in this documentary that no one’s ever seen, stuff that Michael shot himself, behind-the-scenes stuff,” Lee said. “We had complete access to the vaults of Michael Jackson.”

He called it a “treasure chest of findings,” revealed the director. “He wrote 60 demos for the Bad record. Only 11 made it. So we got to hear a lot of that stuff, too, so it was just a great experience.”

A few of the timeless songs that did make the album include “The Way You Make Me Feel,” “Smooth Criminal,” “Dirty Diana” and “Man in the Mirror.”

Lee admits the documentary will highlight a personal side of the King of Pop. “He had a great sense of humor, and he was funny — so you’ll see a lot of that stuff,” he said.

Although a release date for the film has yet to be set, a re-release of the Bad album will hit stores on September 18. It will include additional songs, a DVD and other bonus materials.
