    Celebrity net worth says he's worth 40 million.
    He's asking for 1.25 million.

    He says the "Hollywood Studio System" won't let him make the movie he wants.
    But he owns his own production company '40 Acres and a Mule' with which he has put out 30+ movies that he wants.

    And as opposed to Carolla who told Howard if he doesn't make his million he'll chip in the rest. Spike makes no such claim, stating if they don't reach the 1.25 through donations, the movie will not be made.

    On a side note here is his list of must view films he hands out on the first day of his film class at NYU.

    He's a douche but I can't disagree with too many of his choices in his film list.

    He does have Bridge on the river Quai and the Mad Max movies on there. I can't argue with those choices.

    I watched a Zach Braff interview where he was doing this, to make a quasi-sequel to Garden State. This might be the future of funding Indie films.

    BTW, Menace II Society > Boyz N the Hood. :fil:

    I'd donate to a fund which stops the little troll from making any more movies.

    Yeah, Last Tango in Paris is a real significant contribution to film history...I fast forward to the bush shots only, but the rest of it the guy sits around moping for like 2 hours- fucking ponderous, man...

    I love those French directors though, they always get the chicks prancing around fully nude bcs everyone thinks the director is some kind of genius and it's all "art".

    Spike Lee is a fucking toolbag. Fuck him. There is a reason the studio system won't let him make the movie he wants. None of his movies make much money. So if Spike wants to make the movie he should make it and let it stand on its own merits. Kickstarter is basically bullshit and is the same as giving money to political campaigns. It just goes into a black hole for the most part. Spike has more than enough money to do the project himself. So let him.

    Hey Spike. If you have a good script, spend a chunk of your own money and produce it. Otherwise, STFU.
    You're a racist piece of shit that's made a good living being racist.

    Fuck you.

    As much as I hate to saying anything good about that world-class asshole, Inside Man was a good movie.
