A leaked Sony email reveals that Spike Lee is hoping for Drake and Kevin Hart to take the lead roles in "School Daze Too".
We've already learned a lot of things we weren't supposed to from the recent Sony email leak, and as the massive amount of information is sorted through, we keep getting new updates. The latest tidbit scooped from the leak is that Spike Lee is seeking out Drake and Kevin Hart as the stars of the already penned sequel to his 1988 classic "School Daze".
Lee's agent discussed plans for "School Daze Too" in a conversation with Sony, revealing that both Kevin Hart and Drake are being considered for the film, the latter of which having already come in for a meeting.
“This is a new draft that Spike has written after meetings with Drake, who will play the lead role of PE*NIS, and Kevin Hart who will play DAT NIGGA JIGGA," read the email. "The budget is $ 9 million (net, after Georgia tax credits), not including historic costs, star salaries, creative producer fees. I believe in the film both as an entertainment -- a college film -- and as a provocative and exciting piece about the conflict of traditional values (education, college) and hip hop/star/celebrity culture. Why go to college to get a job to make money when you can make more money rapping, stripping, and creating salacious music videos even if they demean women??”
As far as we know, the project hasn't actually got off the ground yet, as neither Sony nor Lee has confirmed it's production. Spike has mentioned that the script is complete in interviews however, so hopefully we'll see the idea come to fruition.
