'Da 5 Bloods': Chadwick Boseman To Star In Spike Lee's Upcoming Film For Netflix

Spike Lee has set his first post-BlacKkKlansman film, and the star has been selected.

Chadwick Boseman will topline Da 5 Bloods, which will be at Netflix. The film "follows Vietnam veterans who go back to the jungle to find their lost innocence and put their broken selves back together." Delroy Lindo and Jean Reno have also been cast.

Lee will co-write the screenplay with BlacKkKlansman writer Kevin Wilmott. The original story is from Danny Bilson and Paul DeMeo, with rewrites from Matthew Billingsley. This will be Lee's first feature at Netflix, where he has the series She's Gotta Have It and is executive producing the time travel tale See You Yesterday.

Boseman also has Avengers: Endgame and the action film 17 Bridges both coming out later this year.
