Raphael Saadiq To Produce Music For New Spike Lee Thriller

Grammy Award-winning artist and producer Raphael Saadiq has signed on to assist Spike Lee with a forthcoming thriller.

Spike Lee broke the news via Twitter earlier this week.

"Great news. My man Raphael Saadiq doing the music for our new Spike Lee joint. Y'know Saadiq is gonna bring it," wrote Lee.

Details are limited on this project, which Lee has chosen to produce with the help of support from fans on crowdfunding tool Kickstarter.

With $499,704 pledged at this time, Lee is well on his way towards reaching a goal of $1,250,000.

"What I can tell you is this. I have never made a film like this and it excites me very much. I’m doing a semi-genre film about ADDICTION. These people are ADDICTED to BLOOD. Yet however they are not VAMPIRES. It’s going to be SEXY, HUMOROUS and BLOODY. To me that’s a unique combination," Lee says of the film.
