Spike Lee has said that the rumoured Inside Man sequel has been shelved.

Inside Man starred Denzel Washington, Clive Owen and Jodie Foster in a story of an elaborate New York City bank heist.

There have been reports that a script for a follow-up film has been commissioned, but Lee set the record straight in a recent chat with Vulture.

"I don't care [what it says] on IMDb. As far as I know, it's on the shelf," Lee clarified.

He added: "That's a question you have to ask the studios, the powers that be: Why hasn't that film had a sequel? They still make sequels."

Lee is currently promoting the English-language version of the South Korean thriller Oldboy, but has said that he would not allow one of his own films to be remade.

"Over my dead body! Here's the thing: [Oldboy director] Park [Chan-wook] was okay with it. I'm not," he declared.
