Oscar-winner Spike Lee’s Netflix movie Da 5 Bloods has added several more actors to the cast, including a pair of familiar faces from HBO’s classic drama The Wire. 30 years after his breakthrough film Do the Right Thing was shut out at the Oscars, Lee finally won a gold statue in competition for Best Adapted Screenplay for his incendiary 2018 film BlacKkKlansman. However, Lee’s movie ultimately lost Best Picture to Green Book, a development that didn’t sit well with Lee to say the least.
Now, Lee is putting his anger aside to work on BlacKkKlansman’s follow-up Da 5 Bloods, a drama about a group of Vietnam vets returning to the jungles to recover the remains of their lost squad leader. Lee penned the movie’s script with fellow BlacKkKlansman Oscar winner Kevin Willmott, based on an earlier script by Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo. Black Panther star Chadwick Boseman will head up the movie’s cast, and he’ll be joined by Delroy Lindo, Jonathan Majors, Jean Reno and BlacKkKlansman’s Paul Walter Hauser.
