*Spike Lee is in talks to take his Oscar-nominated movie “Do The Right Thing” to the Great White Way.
The filmmaker, currently on Broadway as the director of Mike Tyson’s one-man show “Undisputed,” which opened last week, is now looking to take his 1989 drama about racial tension in Brooklyn’s Bedford-Stuyvesant section to the theatre on the advice of his wife, Tonya.
Appearing on “Today,” he said he’s already in talks with a well-known Broadway mogul about the project.
“I’m talking to Sir James Nederlander about it (taking ‘Do The Right Thing’ to Broadway),” said.
The film was written, produced and directed by Lee, who also starred in it alongside Danny Aiello, Ruby Dee, Martin Lawrence and actress Rosie Perez.
