CS Video: Delroy Lindo & other cast talk Da 5 Bloods!
ComingSoon.net got the opportunity to chat with stars Delroy Lindo (The Good Fight), Jonathan Majors (Lovecraft Country), Clarke Peters (His Dark Materials), Isiah Whitlock Jr. (BlacKkKlansman) and Norm Lewis (Mrs. America) to discuss the latest venture from Spike Lee, Da 5 Bloods, which hits Netflix today! The interviews can be viewed in the player below.
Da 5 Bloods follows the story of four African American veterans who return to Vietnam. Searching for the remains of their fallen squad leader and the promise of buried treasure, our heroes battle forces of man and nature – while confronted by the lasting ravages of the immorality of the Vietnam War.
The film will star Delroy Lindo (Malcolm X), Jonathan Majors (White Boy Rick), Paul Walter Hauser (Late Night), Jean Reno (Léon: The Professional), and Chadwick Boseman (42, Black Panther). It will also feature BlacKkKlansman stars Isiah Whitlock Jr. and Jasper Pääkkönen along with Norm Lewis (Scandal), and Clarke Peters (The Wire), and french actress Melanie Thierry (The Zero Theorem).
It is directed and produced by Spike Lee, who also co-wrote the screenplay with Kevin Willmott, Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo. Lloyd and Beatriz Levin will also serve as producers along with Jon Kilik.
The project will mark the fourth collaboration between the streaming service and Lee, who have both worked on the Netflix special Rodney King, time-traveling film See You Yesterday, and the now-canceled comedy-drama series She’s Gotta Have It which was based on Lee’s 1986 film of the same name.
Coming off from the success of BlacKkKlansman, Lee has successfully won two Academy Awards for Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay along with Charlie Wachtel, David Rabinowitz, and Kevin Willmott. The film was also nominated for Best Picture, Best Supporting Actor (Adam Driver), Best Original Music Score (Terence Blanchard), and Best Film Editing (Barry Alexander Brown).
