Spike Lee Kickstarter Campaign Nabs $10,000 Steven Soderbergh Pledge

Three $10,000 Knicks seats pledged

Spike Lee has raised over $100,000 in two days on Kickstarter from 684 backers for his mysterious film project — including $10,000 from fellow director Steven Soderbergh for dinner and a courtside seat at a New York Knicks game.

Lee is aiming to raise $1.25 million in the next 29 days for a new film that’s known for now as “The Newest Hottest Spike Lee Joint.” He gave few details about the project, but described it as being focused on human beings who are addicted to blood.

Soderbergh and two two other donors have already come on board for the top Kickstarter donation for Lee’s film at $10,000.

As of 2:10 p.m., the project has raised $106,581.
