Spike Lee 2 do a new movie About A Black Cop Who Infiltrates The KKK

Spike Lee & Jordan Peele , will be working the true story of an African-American police officer who infiltrated the KKK,

Director Spike Lee is one of the most prominent African-American filmmakers, making some of the most poignant and relevant films that are full of rich social commentary about class, racism and more. Meanwhile, Jordan Peele just started his directing career by bringing us the powerful horror thriller Get Out, rife with themes and metaphors about race, and a promising beginning to his future as a filmmaker. Now the two directors are teaming up for a new project that will surely have a to say about racism in America.

Spike Lee and Jordan Peele will collaborate on a new project called Black Klansman, which will tell the true story of a black police officer who managed to somehow infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan in the late 1970s. The Black Klansman movie at Focus Features even has a promising new talent in talks to take the lead role.

Lee will direct and produce the movie with Peele producing via his banner Monkeypaw Productions, along with Sean McKittrick, Shaun Redick and Raymond Mansfield of QC Entertainment and Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions. The latter group teamed up previously to produce Peele’s groundbreaking horror thriller Get Out, a box-office sensation of early 2017.

Klansman tells the story of Ron Stallworth, a detective in Colorado Springs, Colorado, who in 1978 answered an ad in the local newspaper seeking new Klan members. He not only gained membership, but rose through the ranks to become the head of the local chapter. Stallworth, who is black, was able to gather all sorts of intelligence by pretending to be a white supremacist on the phone or via other forms of correspondence but sent a white fellow officer in his place for any in-person meetings. During his undercover work, Stallworth managed to sabotage several cross-burnings and other activities of the notorious hate group.
