Da Sweet Blood of Jesus

It's been over a year since we heard any solid news on Spike Lee's indie Da Sweet Blood of Jesus. In fact, the last time we wrote about the project, it was just rounding up funding on Kickstarter and it didn't even have a title yet. Now the film has just been picked up by Gravitas Ventures for release early next year, and the first teaser poster has arrived along with the official plot. The film is described as a reinterpretation of Bill Gunn’s horror cult film Ganja & Hess from the 1973 Cannes Film Festival and focuses on an addiction to blood that once doomed a long forgotten ancient African tribe, and it all begins with Dr. Hess Green (Stephen Tyrone Williams), who is introduced to a mysteriously cursed artifact by an art curator.

Here's the teaser poster for Spike Lee's Da Sweet Blood of Jesus from Gravitas Ventures:

Da Sweet Blood of Jesus

When Dr. Hess Green (Stephen Tyrone Williams) is introduced to a mysteriously cursed artifact by an art curator, Lafayette Hightower (Elvis Nolasco), he is uncontrollably drawn into a newfound thirst for blood that overwhelms his soul. He however is not a vampire. Lafayette quickly succumbs to the ravenous nature of the infliction but leaves Hess a transformed man. Soon Lafayette’s wife, Ganja Hightower (Zaraah Abrahams), comes looking for her husband and becomes involved in a dangerous romance with Hess that questions the very nature of love, addiction, sex, and status in our seemingly sophisticated society. Spike Lee writes and directs Da Sweet Blood of Jesus, and it hits theaters early next year February 13th, 2015.
