Clarke Peters is Da Good Bishop Enoch Rouse in Spike Lee's Red Hook Summer.

Filmmaker Spike Lee’s (Malcolm X) 2012 drama Red Hook Summer is another film in what Lee refers to as his ongoing “Chronicles of Brooklyn” series (which also includes She’s Gotta Have It, Do The Right Thing, Crooklyn, Clockers, and He Got Game).

Red Hook Summer tells the story of Flik Royale (Jules Brown, in his acting debut), a sullen young boy from middle-class Atlanta who has come to spend the summer with his deeply religious grandfather, Bishop Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters, TV’s Treme), in the housing projects of Red Hook.  Having never met before, things quickly get off on the wrong foot as Bishop Enoch relentlessly attempts to convert Flik into a follower of Jesus Christ.  Between his grandfather’s constant preaching and »

James Gandolfini Returns To HBO To Star With Riz Ahmed In 'Criminal Justice' Pilot, Steve Zaillian To Direct

19 September 2012 11:01 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

It seems that HBO and James Gandolfini are just the kind of couple that are meant to be together. Of course, the network and star both mutually benefited with the rousing success of "The Sopranos," but even after the show was over they kept each other's phone numbers. Gandolfini's been attached to a number of brewing projects for his old employers, and a few years later the actor co-starred in the HBO movie "Cinema Verite" with Diane Lane and Tim Robbins. And it looks like they're set to work together again as the cable channel has greenlit a pilot that will put Tony Soprano back in the fold. Gandolfini will join Riz Ahmed in the bland-it-needs-a-title-change "Criminal Justice." A remake of the 2008 BBC series that starred Ben Whishaw, the project will boast a script from writers Steve Zaillian ("The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo") and Richard Price ("Clockers"), and the »

‘Easy Money’ and ‘Safe House’ Director Daniel Espinosa Snags ‘Child 44’

28 August 2012 4:39 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Nobody really liked Safe House and Easy Money, despite Martin Scorsese‘s endorsement, was a flash in the indie pan; 2012 sure was a mixed year for Swedish helmer Daniel Espinosa, release-wise, but it’s been doing some wonders for his career. A new sign comes from Deadline, who tell us he’s being courted by Summit / Lionsgate to helm the long-gestating Child 44.

This adaptation of Tom Rob Smith‘s novel — scripted by Richard Price (Clockers, The Color of Money) — was once on Ridley Scott‘s plate, but, knowing him, it couldn’t be approached before the studios wanted to get a start; Scott Free will still be producing. So they’ve turned to Espinosa, a filmmaker who’s been showing talent with projects that, regardless, may not always have the right scripts.

We might have a solution. In the book, a disgraced Soviet lawyer named Leo Demidov is asked to look into child murders which, »

Daniel Espinosa To Direct Former Ridley Scott Project 'Child 44'

28 August 2012 3:39 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this year, we took a look at a handful of directors who are attached to a zillion projects, and one of those folks was Ridley Scott. One of the movies on his slate was "Child 44," and among the plethora of options he currently has, we figured the chances of him actually getting behind the camera on this (which he signed on for way back in 2007) at about 8/1 and for those you betting at home, you can now take it off his list. Another name is stepping in, and it's an exciting one. "Snabba Cash" and "Safe House" helmer Daniel Espinosa is in early talks to take the reins, with Scott Free producing (of course), and the project now set up over at Summit. Based on the book by Tom Rob Smith and adapted by the excellent Richard Price ("The Wire," "Clockers"), the Cold War-era tale follows a disgraced Mgb »

Film Review: Spike Lee Returns to Brooklyn in ‘Red Hook Summer’

24 August 2012 11:06 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – “I ain’t pawning my responsibility off as a parent and saying she’s in God’s hands.” What a powerful line. The idea that religion has been used as a crutch, an excuse for communities who preach that God will save their young ones when they need to do their part is a passionate and powerful one. And we all know that Spike Lee does his best work when he’s inspired by powerful ideas. “Red Hook Summer,” the controversial director’s controversial latest features Lee playing with fascinating concepts and working well with setting even if the final result isn’t quite the sum of its parts.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

Flik Royale (newcomer Jules Brown) has been sent from Atlanta to Red Hook, Brooklyn to live with his preacher grandfather Da Good Bishop Enoch Rouse (Clarke Peters of “The Wire”). Flik immediately butts head with his passionate relative, one »

Red Hook Summer | Review

Summer Bummer: Lee Offers Strong Ending for the Devoted

With his first fictional film since 2008’s Miracle at St. Anna, the ever divisive Spike Lee returns with a film he himself personally financed, Red Hook Summer. While it does bear labor of love earmarks, this personal tale that touches on the gentrification of Brooklyn, unfortunately takes an awfully long time to find its voice. With a running time of 130 minutes, the first 90 feel like Lee wants to punish the viewer with a mixture of painfully wooden child actors, and worse, with plenty of unnecessary and wearying church sermons. If you’ve not been to the “good house” for a while, you might feel like you’ve been held hostage to the word by Spike Lee. But if you’ve the patience, Lee has a rewarding payoff in store for you in the film’s final fourth that lessens the load »

Bruce Hornsby's Steps to Scoring a Spike Lee Movie

22 August 2012 10:38 AM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

Music is just as important as other cinematic elements in a Spike Lee Joint, and Bruce Hornsby (famous for the 1986 hit "The Way It Is") is the man behind much of the music. He's scored several of Lee's movies, including "Clockers," "Bamboozled" and the director's latest, "Red Hook Summer."

If you've ever wondered how a Lee film gets that unique sound, Hornsby breaks it down for you in an exclusive interview with MTV Hive. While the creative process for each film is different, Hornsby scored "Red Hook Summer" on the road, before he saw any of the movie.

"I was on the road for a month-and-a-half. [Laughs.] But he kept calling me and saying 'Hey, can you send me something? You got any ideas?'" Hornsby told MTV Hive. "Spike told me he likes melodic music, so I had some vague marching orders there. At least I knew where I should go. »

Weekly Poll Results: Best Spike Lee Movie

16 August 2012 9:21 AM, PDT | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Considering the divisive nature of some of Spike Lee's films, one might have expected last week's poll to have been a little bit closer. However, it was his breakout film Do the Right Thing that came up with a clear and decisive victory, earning nearly twice as many votes from Film Junk readers as its closest competitor. The runner-up was the crowd pleasing thriller Inside Man starring Denzel Washington, followed much more closely by The 25th Hour and Malcolm X. The rest of the pack was mostly ignored with the basketball drama He Got Game coming in a distant fifth place. Do you agree with these results? 1. Do the Right Thing -- 37.8% 2. Inside Man -- 20.1% 3. The 25th Hour -- 16.4% 4. Malcolm X -- 13.8% 5. He Got Game -- 3.9% 6. Summer of Sam -- 3.6% 7. Jungle Fever -- 1.6% 8. When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts -- 1.3% 9. Clockers -- 1% 10. She's Gotta Have It »

The Playlist Q&A: Spike Lee Talks 'Red Hook Summer,' Hollywood, Michael Jackson & More

9 August 2012 12:07 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

The Republic of Brooklyn and its ongoing chronicles have taken director Spike Lee all over New York's brightest and best borough (its estimated that if Brooklyn was its own city it would be the fourth most populace one in the United States). "Do The Right Thing" took place in Bed-Stuyvesant, parts of "Jungle Fever" took place in Bensonhurst, while Harlem-centric "Mo' Better Blues" homebase was Dumbo, "Clockers" was set among the Boerum Hill projects, "He Got Game" landed in Coney Island and "She’s Gotta Have It" was centered in Fort Greene where Lee lived for many years, to name a few. And so for his latest effort "Red Hook Summer," Lee looked to one of Brooklyn's isolated corners, Red Hook, the North-Western most tip, extending to the water and only a minor kayak ride away from the Statue of Liberty. As Lee said in our exclusive Playlist interview, Red Hook is largely cut off. »

Review: Spike Lee's Red Hook Summer

9 August 2012 9:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Red Hook Summer, Spike Lee's 20th feature film and the sixth entry in his "Chronicles of Brooklyn" series (after She's Gotta Have It, Do the Right Thing, Crooklyn, Clockers, and He Got Game), represents a cinematic homecoming for the director, both to the setting of his beloved borough and to his low-budget indie beginnings. Red Hook Summer, in its ethos and aesthetic, wears its status as an independent, guerilla-style production very much on its sleeve. Shot in 18 days, often without permits, and funded entirely by Lee, Red Hook Summer was made outside of, and very consciously conceived in opposition to, the Hollywood system. Lee has repeatedly asserted in interviews that he never even bothered to approach studios with this project, feeling none would greenlight »

Spike Lee, 'Red Hook Summer' Director, On 'Do The Right Thing,' 'The Wire' And 'Oldboy'

6 August 2012 8:27 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

The offices of Spike Lee's Brooklyn-based production company "40 Acres and a Mule," are buzzing -- dozens of people working, eating, talking and taking pictures. The walls are covered in movie and sports collectibles, signs and artwork. There are abstract portraits of Michael Jordan and Muhammed Ali; a framed Sal's pizza box from Spike's seminal 1989 film, "Do the Right Thing"; a collage of Michael Jackson photos; a Reggie Miller-signed Indiana Pacers jersey (seriously); and a street sign with the N-word prominently printed in the center with a giant red strike through it. Overwhelming as these surroundings are, I have one thought going into my Q+A with Spike: "Will he be the interview subject everyone says he is? The controversial, ornery, take-no-prisoners filmmaker?" The atmosphere at his office only reinforces the notion that this is his place, and whatever he says, goes. However, the Spike Lee I meet, in »

Spike Lee Promises ‘Old Boy’ Will Feature a Diverse Cast

6 August 2012 7:46 AM, PDT | ScreenRant.com | See recent Screen Rant news »

Spike Lee is known for being a lot of things, but few (no one?) would criticize him for creating “white-washed” portraits of America throughout his films. Lee is an indie cinema pioneer whose willingness to tackle racially-charged subject matter has remained constant, on through to his upcoming film, Red Hook Summer; even his genre efforts traditionally boast a diverse acting ensemble, as far as ethnicity goes (Clockers, Insider Man).

The Oldboy remake (going under the tweaked title Old Boy) is the next item on Lee’s docket. Josh Brolin is playing the protagonist, Joe Douchett, a weak-willed man imprisoned in a hotel room for nearly two decades. He emerges a hardened brute, tasked with discovering the reason for his punishment by his mysterious captor (Sharlto Copley).

Old Boy was a lightning rod for controversy well ...

5 Things You May Not Know About 'Do The Right Thing'

2 July 2012 5:31 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

On a weekend where record temperatures were being recorded in New York City, and elsewhere in the U.S., it's appropriate that two of the best films in theaters, "Magic Mike" and "Take This Waltz," both revolve around long, hot summers. And it's doubly appropriate that Saturday also marked the anniversary of perhaps the definitive heatwave movie: Spike Lee's "Do The Right Thing." Of course, Lee's masterpiece isn't just a look at Brooklyn over a boiling hot summer day, it's also one of the greatest American films in the history of the medium, one whose critical reputation has only grown since Kim Basinger's protestation on stage at the Oscars the following year that it was the best film of 1989, and yet hadn't been nominated (although Danny Aiello got a nod, as did Lee's screenplay).

Set on the hottest day of the summer, the film stars Lee himself as Mookie, »
