How 'Da 5 Bloods' Changed Hands from Oliver Stone to Spike Lee | Directors on Directors

Spike Lee’s “Da 5 Bloods” captured a critical point of view lost from film.

Before “Da 5 Bloods” was a Spike Lee joint, however, it was titled “The Last Tour” and Oliver Stone was attached to direct.

Variety brought the Oscar-winning NYU film grads together for the Directors on Directors series to discuss the origins of “Da 5 Bloods” and its important journey to unearth the real history of America’s oppression and systemic racism.
