Spike Lee - 40 Acres

With 2 weeks to go, he's raised just over $725,000 of the campaign's $1.25 million goal. With $500,000 and 14 days left to go, I'd say the campaign should be a success. It's not uncommon to see last minute surges in contributions on popular campaigns like this one, and actually in general.

But just in case... 

The image and video below, with Spike himself, have all the details. 

At $25 per head, I don't think expectations are that the money that comes in from this will take much of a bite of of the film's budget. However, just in case it comes downs to the final moments of the campaign's end, and it's in need of a few thousand dollars to get it over the hump, the money generated by this DJ Extravaganza event, taking place next week Friday, might provide that much needed push over the finish line.

    He doesn't NEED money. He has a net worth of 40 million dollars (look it up). He just wants to spend your money not his own on some vampire film that must have the worst pitch if spike lee can't get a a couple of million from a studio to make it. Spike Lee is in my opinion, a arrogant hack.

    If it comes to reaching out to Spike for a script consideration or advice, he's like Willy Wonka, no entry or access, "no unsolicited submissions", but when he needs money, everyone is given golden tickets! yes!

    Sour grapes. Do you really expect Spike (or any black actor, director, producer, etc...) to be open to each and every script submitted to him by anybody with a computer?

    The man is crazy to be sure. Crazy like a fox. Everyone should be taking notes.
