Congratulations to Stephen Tyrone Williams who has been cast in the lead in the upcoming Spike Lee mystery project that he recently raised funds via a successful Kickstarter campaign.
“Ladies and Gentleman, Mr. Stephen Tyrone Williams has been offered the Lead MALE Role in my New Spike Lee Joint. I first saw the fresh face and abundance of Talent at The Broadway Opening of the late Nora Ephron’s Lucky Guy starring Tom Hanks; Directed by My Main Man George Wolfe. Stephen’s performance as Abner Louima was haunting. The Opening Night Audience held their collective captive breath as he retells the terror of being sodomized with a Billy Club by one of New York’s Finest. At the After Party, I found Stephen and told him how much I enjoyed his performance and God Willing One day we would be able to work together. Well, that day is here. Stephen Tyrone Williams is gonna do his THANG. And That’s The Bloody Truth Ruth.” – Spike Lee
Williams will co-star opposite the previously cast Zaraah Abrahams, the film’s leading lady. Former Tony! Toni! Toné! and Lucy Pearl member, Raphael Saadiq will compose the film’s soundtrack.
Three-time Black Reel Award winner Lee is closely guarding many of the details of this mystery project. Check out the teaser poster, below. The initial image gives no indication of Lee’s claim that will focus on human beings addicted to blood.
No date yet for the start of production.
