Spike Lee Is Selling Time
Considering a supernatural thriller

24 May 2006  |  Written by   |  Source: Variety

Spike Lee is on the hunt for a film to follow up Inside Man. While he hasn’t finally settled on one, he has thrown supernatural thriller Selling Time into consideration.

20th Century Fox got him interested in the film, which is about a man who sells parts of his life as he tries to relive and alter the worst day he ever had.

Spike will pen the script and then decide if he wants to make it his next joint behind the camera.

Fox will be hoping the movie finally makes it on to the screen – it’s been in development for ages, with Forest Whitaker at one point on board to direct and Will Smith considering the lead. All the company can do now is wait and hope that Spike likes it.
