Spike Lee will be the seventh director of “Take Seven,” a collection of short films produced by MK Film Prods. and RAI for UNICEF. (Project was formerly titled “All the Invisible Children.”) Net profits from the pic will go into a common pool managed by UNICEF, United Nations World Food Program and Italian Development Co-op.

The other directors, previously announced, are John Woo, Ridley and Jordan Scott, Stefano Veneruso, Katia Lund, Mehdi Charef and Emir Kusturica.

Lee’s script, written by his siblings Joie Lee and Cinque Lee, is the story of the daughter of drug addicts who is born HIV-positive but kept in the dark about her status; all hell breaks loose when her classmates find out.

Lee plans to shoot the pic in Brooklyn Thursday through Sunday. The cast includes Rosie Perez, Andre Ryo, Lynn Whitfield and newcomer Hannah Hudson.

“I think it’s a great project and I’m happy to be a part of it,” Lee said. “This is my first involvement with UNICEF and I want to do more.”
