Spike Lee Making Kobe Doc


Amid further news from Clive Owen in the past week on the sequel to Inside Man, Spike Lee is turning his hand back over to documentaries with a film about LA Lakers star Kobe Bryant. The film, called Kobe Doin’ Work, is reportedly going to be shot in a similar style to the excellent, Mogwai-scored Zidane from a few years back which used a number of different cameras to film French maestro Zinedine Zidane during a game later in his career playing for Real Madrid.

Kind of an interesting project for Lee on two levels. First, his  last documentary, When the Levees Broke, was a masterpiece, although the kind of prosletysing his work occasionally becomes did work amid the righteous indignation of that situation, and might not outside of it. Second, Lee is a notoriously huge fan of the New York Knicks and therefore must have a major love for Kobe’s game to make a movie about a player from the enemy on the opposite coast.
