‘Inside’ team takes another U turn

Helmer Lee leverages 'Man' sequel

Spike Lee and Brian Grazer are developing a sequel to “Inside Man” for Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment.

Lee is still in negotiations on a helming deal for the project, but he’s already working with the original’s writer, Russell Gewirtz, on a script.

For now, the pair are keeping their sequel concept under wraps, including whether it would involve the return of the original’s main characters, played by Denzel Washington, Clive Owen and Jodie Foster.

Bank heist thriller became the biggest-grossing pic in Lee’s helming career, earning $184 million at the worldwide box office earlier this year.

Sequel is now on a list of several projects Lee is considering for his next helming gig.

In addition to “Man,” this year Lee also directed Hurricane Katrina docu “When the Levees Broke: A Requiem in Four Acts” for HBO.
