I missed these Spike Lee tweets yesterday... better late than never. Read on...

Yesterday I Went To McKean Federal Correctional Institute in West Hell,Pennsylvania To Spend 2 Great Hours With My Man Wesley Snipes CONT

Mr.Snipes Is In Great Shape,Mentally,Physically& Spiritually.We Laughed& Joked For The Whole 2 Hour Visit. He Said When He Gets Out-It's On.

I don't think I need to translate any of that. 

Of course there were lots of replies from his followers; of note, one person asked whether he and Wesley would collab on a project. And Spike replied with, "We talked about it." And of course, speculation began... what could this collab they talked about be, hmmm?

Heck if I know. For all we know, the conversation could've gone something like this:

Wesley: When I get out Spike, you and I gotta do something together mayne.

Spike: No doubt... no doubt.

The End.

Or maybe it was something more specific. We'll never know.

The pair have worked together before, and were scheduled to work together again at one point. So of course the likelihood of them working together again shouldn't be a surprise.

Another follower asked Spike whether Wesley is in Jungle Fever-shape or Blade-shape. Spike replied saying that he's in Blade-shape.

And then more speculation continued... hmmm... was that some kind of a hint? Might Spike and Wesley be planning some kind of action/crime/thriller project for when Wesley gets out?

Heck if I know.

What I do know is that Wesley just finished 1 year of a 3 year sentence. Unless he's let out early, he's got just about 2 years to go before he's a free man again. And I'm looking forward to seeing brothaman on the big screen again; let's hope in some really good projects.
