spike lee to direct james brown biopicSpike Lee has been attached to direct a James Brown biopic, reports Variety. Before his death, Brown was involved in the development of the project, making himself available to scriptwriters, and permitting access to his close confidant, Bobby Byrd. Also by Brown’s hand, Lee and his collaborators will have full access to his music library at their disposal.

Production for the film will likely start in 2008, allowing Lee to direct his upcoming project based on the 1992 L.A. riots, and possibly a sequel to Inside Man, beforehand.
