Spike Lee Hits $1.25 Million Kickstarter Goal, 3rd Biggest Film in Site’s History

Only 'Veronica Mars' and Zach Braff top Lee

Spike Lee passed his $1.25 million fundraising goal on Kickstarter for his next movie, now the third most-backed in the history of the crowdfunding site behind the “Veronica Mars” movie and Zach Braff‘s next film.

Lee has now raised $1.29 million with four days remaining for his project, which he's described as being about “Human beings who are addicted to Blood. Funny, Sexy and Bloody. A new kind of love story (and not a remake of "Blacula").”

The director is best known for classic films “Do The Right Thing,” “Malcolm X” and “He Got Game” and his last film was “Red Hook Summer,” which he self-financed.

“The truth is I’ve been doing Kickstarter before there was Kickstarter, there was no Internet,” Lee wrote on his page. “Social Media was writing letters, making phone calls, beating the bushes. I’m now using technology with what I’ve been doing.”
