Spike Lee apparently doesn’t leave the best taste in Hollywood’s mouth.

It’s not that he doesn’t make some dynamic, worth-talking-about films. It’s more like he’s not someone they particularly want to work with … at least that’s the impression producer Brian Grazer gives.

Spike was on the list to direct the James Brown biopic,  but Grazer changed his mind after analyzing a few things.

    I won’t watch the movie. If Spike did the movie it would have been another great piece like Malcolm X in ’92. That Chadwick Bosewell is incapable of playing The Godfather of Soul. Quit letting them white folks dictate us.

    Spike need to understand that if you’re going to be a cantankerous naysayer,some people might want to shy away from you. I wish him the best.

    I wouldn’t want to work with him either. I don’t think money was an issue. It’s a James Brown biopic. Clearly money isn’t that big of an object lol. I fully think people just didn’t want to work with him.
