HOLLYWOOD – The Studio Exec has obtained a sneak peak at the new Spike Lee film: The Joseph Fiennes Story.
Spike Lee’s biopic of actor and Voldemort brother Joseph Fiennes is well into production and the first picture was released today EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec. The Do The Right Thing director last night stated that his film of the Shakespeare in Love star was a direct response to Joseph Fiennes’ appearance as Michael Jackson in a new TV show.
Spike Lee came by the Studio Exec bungalow to discuss the new project:
I like Joseph Fiennes. I love him in everything he’s ever been in, especially Flash Forward. But frankly following the announcement of the Oscars and the campaign to promote diversity this news came as a slap in the face to all folks who had been upset about the lack of diversity in recent years. So I’ve decided I’m going to fight fire with fire.
The film will cover Joseph Fiennes career from Shakespeare in Love to the present day.
I’m interested in Joseph Fiennes as I think that it is a unique story of fame and anonymity. Joseph is famous but at the same time always in the shadow of his brother, who will be played by Samuel L. Jackson.
The Joseph Fiennes Story will be released in 2017.
NEW YORK – Today Studio Exec caused egregious offence and possibly super Red Hook Horror to the film maker, hat model, and visionary Spike Lee (For that Story See Here), by writing a story about how he had criticised Lee Daniels’ Lee Daniels’ The Butler (FOR THAT STORY READ HERE) and we are so sorry.
Pretty much none of it was true. Though the way Spike Lee went at us … but none of it was true.
We wish… no wait, I … me, the Studio Exec wholeheartedly wish to say sorry.
And in no way do I want this to be jokey and ironic and stupid.
This is serious.
I upset the man who made Do the Right Thing, so I want to do the right thing.
I disturbed the man who made She’s Gotta Have It and Malcolm X, and I don’t want to wait until The 25th Hour before I… oh wait did you see what I did there?
In my defence Spike did make Inside Man and Miracle at St. Anna, and even as he complained about having words put in his mouth, the Italian partisans slandered in that… no wait, that’s not the point. What I discovered today was the man who made Bamboozled has not as broad a sense of humour as I had anticipated, so I’m sorry and I swear to God I will never take his name in vain again. The most original film maker working in America today.
His remake of Old Boy is released in November, 2013.
