Looks like the new Spike Lee joint is happening after all thanks to Kickstarter. On Thursday, the acclaimed director surpassed his $1.2 million fundraising goal and as of noon on Friday, more than 5,300 backers have donated more than $1.3 million.

Lee has vigoriously defended his right to fundraise the money through Kickstater, even though some critics claim that a director of his stature could raise enough money through traditional Hollywood channels of financing. 

So far, Lee’s upcoming film is only known as “The Newest Hottest Spike Lee Joint.”
