Spike Lee Settles Into Warm Chair

Now that James Brown has passed on and can no longer cash in on his outrageous dance moves, infectious grooves and eccentric character, somebody else is going to be able to.

Spike Lee has already announced that he now intends to film a James Brown biopic, even though filming won't begin for at least a full year. What on earth could his motivation for announcing the film now be? Does anybody find this a little bit tasteless?

I suppose some will argue that the announcement is a kind of tribute. Hmmmm.

Brian Grazer, predictably enough, will produce. I nominate Harvey Keitel for a cameo as Larry Cohen.
