Oldboy,  Spike Lee

With Spike Lee's Kickstarter-funded "Da Sweet Blood Of Jesus" set to premiere at the American Black Film Festival next month, the always busy filmmaker isn't stopping for a moment. He's got a handful of projects on the horizon, including comedy specials for both Katt Williams and Jerrod Carmichael, and there's now a documentary to keep an eye out for.

The Daily Beast reveals that Lee is already at work on "Go Brazil Go," a movie that chronicles the efforts of journalist group Midia Ninja and activist group Foro do Eixo. With the World Cup coming up, Midia Ninja is promising to cover all angles of the events, from what's happening on the pitch to what's going down in the streets, while the latter organization is committed to helping regular citizens get their voices heard online, with tools provided for blogging, video editing and more.

There's not much word on when the Lee documentary might air, but he's already at work on it and it sounds fascinating.

Shifting gears, Larry Charles ("Borat," "Bruno") has been tasked with writing and possibly directing "The Man Who Sued God." The movie is a reimagining of a 2001 Australian film that Deadline reveals follows "an ex-lawyer who files a claim against The Man Upstairs after his insurance company dismisses the destruction of his boat as an 'act of God.' " Ha ha? Here's the trailer for the original.
