Variety reports the film is Da 5 Bloods, which finds Lee returning to the war film after Miracle at St. Anna, this time the Vietnam War.

Lindo will be playing one of the four leads (the fifth Blood died in Vietnam), and while it's unclear whether Boseman will be playing Lindo's son, he is expected to play the son of one of the four leads. I was told that he chopped down the cherry tree and wouldn't tell a lie. Matthew Billingsly also had a hand in the script.

"BlacKkKlansman" director Spike Lee made reference to explorer Christopher Columbus during an interview Wednesday morning by describing him as a "terrorist" and saying that he thinks the United States needs to be truthful about the country's past. That film also chalked up five additional nominations for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Adam Driver), Best Original Music Score (Terence Blanchard), Best Adapted Screenplay (Lee, Kevin Willmott), and Best Film Editing (Barry Alexander Brown).

Apple to announce a new subscription-focused service on March 25th
That was previously reported to not be going very well, as Apple is reportedly demanding 50% of the revenue from publishers. Rumor mill: A premium news service from Apple could ask publishers to give up half of their earnings.

Lee and Boseman are expected to begin work on the project after the award season is over. Keep in mind that he's already in business with Netflix on the TV adaptation of his early film She's Gotta Have It. "BlacKkKlansman" is the filmmaker's biggest domestic box office performer since 2006's "Inside Man". He's up next in STX's action thriller "17 Bridges" which hits theaters July 12.

Delroy Lindo and Jean Reno are also attached to star in the film.

Lee is repped by ICM Partners and attorney Robert Strent at Grubman Shire Meiselas & Sacks and Boseman is repped by Greene & Associates Talent Agency, Management 360 and Ziffren Brittenham.
