Filmmaker Spike Lee is relying on crowdfunding website Kickstarter to collect finances for his new movie. Lee says that Hollywood’s studio system does not favour funding for independent filmmakers.

According to Spike Lee, this new movie’s plot will be about "human beings who are addicted to blood". The legendary film director plans to raise around 1.25 million USD through his campaign on Kickstarter.

All that is known about this new Spike Lee film is that it will be independently produced and that it will be a comedy. The filmmaker posted a message attached to his Kickstarter campaign page saying that the film will be “funny, sexy and bloody”. There has been no mention of any vampires in the movie but there is quite an odd addendum to the message saying “and it’s not ‘Blacula’”. Lee has probably kept as much mystery around his next project so as to obtain as much funds as possible from his fans.

The Kickstarter page accepts donations ranging from 5 USD to 10,000 USD. The highest donators are rewarded with prizes ranging from a simple thank you Tweet from Spike Lee to a basketball ticket to go see a game with the man himself. The filmmaker has until the 21st of August to satisfy his crowdfunding campaign. If ever the required amount is not obtained before this date, all donators shall be refunded.

Spike Lee says that he has relied on the Kickstarter platform because of the lack of interest shown by Hollywood to fund independent filmmakers. He also said that high budget action films are all that seem to be made these days: "It seems like these are the only films getting made... I have a different vision of what some under-served audiences might want to see."
