Spike Lee Now that his verbal beatdown with Clint Eastwood over the omission of black soldiers from Dirty Harry's WWII flicks appears to have subsided, Spike Lee is back in the news for something much more positive.

Lee, whose next film "Miracle at St. Anna" hits theaters in October, reportedly used his own money to purchase the rights to "Time Traveler: A Scientist's Personal Mission to Make Time Travel a Reality." According to Canmag.com, Lee will write and direct the project which is being adapted from the memoir of an African American physicist named Ronald Mallett.

The book chronicles Mallett's journey from poverty to a respected academic who wants to develop a time machine so that he can go back in time and reunite with his dead father.

Sounds like another intriguing leading role for Terrence Howard. Just throwing that out there Spike.
