It has been reported that filmmaker Spike Lee is planning on going forward with his plan to have Wesley Snipes star as the late James Brown in an upcoming biopic. Currently Snipes is awaiting appeal on a three-year prison sentence for tax evasion. He was sentenced in April 2008.
Lee recently told MTV News, "We're doing it together, it's going to happen."
Lee announced his plan to make the biopic the day after Brown's death in 2006. Paramount Pictures and Lee acquired the rights shortly thereafter.
