Spike Lee Granted a "Miracle"


Spike Lee


Acclaimed filmmaker Spike Lee is poised to helm big screen adaptation of Walter McBride's WWII novel "Miracle at St. Anna."

Seemingly on the run to be one of the busiest filmmakers working today, Spike Lee is set to direct "Miracle at St. Anna", an Italy-set World War II drama about black American soldiers fighting the German army in the mountains of Tuscany.

Made under the keen eye of Italian producers Luigi Musini and Roberto Cicutto, pic turns out to be a film adaptation of U.S. author Walter McBride's novel of the same name which presents the true life account of four members of the U.S. army's 92nd division of all-black soldiers. Trapped in a Tuscan village in 1994, the quartet not only had to deal with their racist, incompetent commanders, but the ruthless Nazi soldiers as well.

Project will be developed from script written by McBride himself and is expected to begin shooting next year on Tuscan WWII combat locations. No word yet on the stars, but Musini has given assurance that the big-budget movie will "feature a mostly American cast."
