*HBO’s drama pilot “Da Brick” has hit a brick wall.
The pay cable network just passed on the project, executive produced by Spike Lee, John Ridley, Doug Ellin and Mike Tyson, according to Deadline.com.
Written by Ridley and directed by Lee, “Da Brick” was inspired in part by Tyson’s youth and explored what it means to be a young, black man in supposedly post-racial America.
The central character of troubled aspiring young boxer Donnie was played by newcomer John Boyega. Ellin, Ridley, Lee, Tyson and Jim Lefkowitz executive produced.
