When it was announced that Spike Lee was bringing his classic film “She’s Gotta Have It” to Netflix, we were excited! As one the standout black female feminist characters of the era, we’re all curious to see how he reprises that narrative for the 21st century.
And while a lot of the production has been hush-hush, Lee in an Instagram post Sunday morning, shared a photo of the individuals involved in the show. “SHE’S GOTTA HAVE IT Cast And Writers Dinner Last Night At Da SOHO House,” he says.
Adding, “Thank You Tara, Layne And Aja -Netflix Black Gurl Magic. Ladies And Gentlemen, Boys And Girls DO NOT DESPAIR. We Are Still Casting.”
In addition to Spike, we spot his sister Joie Lee in the group.
The Oscar-nominated director said in a statement: SHE’S GOTTA HAVE IT Has A Very Special Place In My Heart. We Shot This Film In 12 Days (2 Six Day Weeks) Way Back In The Back Back Of The Hot Summer Of 1985 For A Mere Total of $175,000. Funds That We Begged, Borrowed and Whatnot To Get That Money. This Is The 1st Official Spike Lee Feature Film Joint And Everything That We Have Been Blessed With In This Tough Business Of Film All Have Been Due To SGHI.
Now With The Passing (August 8th) Of The 30th Anniversary, It’s A Gift That Keeps On Giving.
