Spike Lee nears ‘Deadline’

Director in negotiations for action-thriller

Spike Lee is in negotiations to direct action-thriller “Nagasaki Deadline,” with Warner Bros.-based Alcon Entertainment financing.

Alcon co-toppers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson are co-producing with Kira Davis of 8:38 Prods., and Jon Landau and Rae Sanchini. “Nagasaki” writers David and Peter Griffiths (“The Hunted,” “Collateral Damage”) will exec produce.

“Nagasaki” centers on an emotionally damaged FBI agent who must decipher historic events in order to avert a terrorist plot.

William Broyles Jr. (“Cast Away”) re-wrote Griffiths’ script, and the Griffiths completed a subsequent polish. Davis brought the project to Alcon.

Alcon’s next feature release is urban comedy “Lottery Ticket,” starring Bow Wow and Ice Cube and opening Aug. 20 through Warners. It just wrapped principal photography in New York on “Something Borrowed” starring Kate Hudson, Ginnifer Goodwin and John Krasinski.

Lee’s recent gigs were “Miracle at St. Anna” and “Inside Man.”

Lee and Broyles are represented by CAA. The Griffiths are represented by Verve.
