UPDATE: Spike Lee Intent on Making His ‘Nagasaki Deadline’

Monday, June 28 by

…right after he finishes his treat.

UPDATE: James Cameron won’t be taking the producer credit, but his Lightstorm team of Jon Landau and Rae Sanchini are still on it. Cameron’s most likely too busy trying to crus the box office yet again with his next project.

Spike Lee is crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s to direct Nagasaki Deadline, with James Cameron set to produce. It will be his first feature since 2008′s Miracle At St. Anna. Deadline has the deets:

The film focuses on a troubled FBI agent and his desperate race to thwart two terrorist attacks planned to unfold on American soil. The fed goes beyond obvious suspects to focus on theories that the crime is tied to historical events, as he races against the clock.

They’ve somehow managed to bring the broad scope of the The National Treasure movies to post-9/11 terrorism drama. Let’s just go ahead and get the paperwork moving along for Nic Cage’s casting. With Lee and Cage on the same movie, some studio exec wouldn’t sleep from pre-production all the way to its premiere. Lee will make constant creative demands, and Cage will want to spend most of his time with a block of C4, you know, to get inside the head of a plastic explosive.
