Spike Lee is looking for financial help with his next project and Steven Soderbergh has stepped up to help.
Lee is the most recent member of Hollywood to turn to crowdfunding as a means to create a new film. After launching his Kickstarter on Monday, the director has already received nine pledges of $10,000, one of which came from fellow filmmaker Soderbergh.
In Lee's quest for $1.25 million he has included various incentives at different pledge levels. At the highest tier is the $10,000 contribution, which comes with an opportunity to dine with the Red Hook Summer helmer and courtside seats for a New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden.
"I'm taking him to dinner and we're going to the game together," Lee told NextMovie of his plans with Soderbergh."I don't even know if he likes sports! So I'm gonna pick the game for him. But I'm giving a huge shout-out to my man Steven Soderbergh for the support and I'm really humbled with Steven coming on board and doing that. Thank you, Steven."
Little is known about the latest venture from the New York based artist. According to Lee's Kickstarter, the film will involve humans who are addicted to blood and will be "funny, sexy, and bloody."
The project has until Aug. 21 to reach its funding goal or else all money will be returned to the contributors.
