Da 5 Bloods (D: Spike Lee) S: Chadwick Boseman — Netflix

Spike Lee has tapped Chadwick Boseman to join the ensemble of his next film, “Da 5 Bloods.”

Netflix is in talks to distribute the movie, with Delroy Lindo and Jean Reno also in negotiations to star.

Lee will also write the film with Kevin Willmott, based on an original screenplay by Danny Bilson & Paul DeMeo, and rewrite by Matthew Billingsly. Lee will also produce with Beatriz Levin & Lloyd Levin, and Jon Kilik.

The film follows Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle to find their lost innocence.

“To quote my brother Jay-Z from Da People’s Republic of Brooklyn ‘On to Da Next One,'” Lee said.

Sources expect production to begin as early as next month once Lee’s Oscar campaign on “BlacKkKlansman” has officially wrapped up. “Da 5 Bloods” would mark Lee’s first directing gig for Netflix as the streaming giant continues to draw high-profile talent. He also executive produces their TV adaptation of his film “She’s Gotta Have It.”

Lee had been taking his time in shopping the script to studios, with Netflix coming in aggressively after Lee’s “BlacKkKlansman” landed six Oscar nominations, including one for Lee as director and one for best picture.

Last year marked a return to the spotlight for the iconic director. “BlacKkKlansman” is the filmmaker’s biggest domestic box office performer since 2006’s “Inside Man.”

For Boseman, 2018 was a milestone year, after “Black Panther” made box office history and landed a best picture Oscar nomination. He can next be seen in the STX thriller “17 Bridges,” bowing this summer.

Lindo and Lee collaborate frequently, with the actor having previously appeared in his films “Clockers,” “Crooklyn,” and “Malcolm X.”

Lee is repped by ICM Partners and attorney Robert Street at Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks and Boseman is repped by Greene & Associates Talent Agency, Management 360 and Ziffren Brittenham. Lindo is repped by APA.

Spike Lee’s anticipated Netflix film Da 5 Bloods has rounded out cast, we can reveal.

Drama Da 5 Bloods, currently in pre-production, will follow the story of four African American vets who return to Vietnam. Searching for the remains of their fallen squad leader (Boseman) and the promise of buried treasure, the heroes battle forces of man and nature while confronted by the lasting ravages of the immorality of the Vietnam War.

Script comes form Danny Bilson, Paul DeMeo, Matt Billingsly, Kevin Willmott and Spike Lee. Producers are Lloyd Levin (Hellboy), Beatriz Levin, Jon Kilik (The Hunger Games) and Spike Lee. Cinematographer is Newton Thomas Sigel (Bohemian Rhapsody).

The film marks Netflix’s fourth collaboration with recent Oscar winner Lee. He previously wrote and directed the series version of She’s Gotta Have It, which is currently in post-production on it’s second season; and directed Roger Guenveur Smith’s one man show Rodney King for Netflix. Lee is also in post-production on the time-travel feature film See You Yesterday, which he is producing for Netflix.

Peters is represented by Vanguard Management Group and Conway van Gelder Grant. Lewis is repped by Paradigm and Jeremy Katz at The Katz Company. Whitlock Jr.’s reps are Liebman Entertainment, CornerStone Talent Agency and Schreck Rose Dapello & Adams.
