Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods rounds out cast with 5 new members

Netflix has announced that BlacKkKlansman stars Isiah Whitlock Jr. and Jasper Pääkkönen will reunite with director Spike Lee in his forthcoming Vietnam war drama Da 5 Bloods. Norm Lewis (Scandal), and Clarke Peters (The Wire), and french actress Melanie Thierry (The Zero Theorem) have also signed on for the film.

Da 5 Bloods follows the story of four African American veterans who return to Vietnam. Searching for the remains of their fallen squad leader (Chadwick Boseman) and the promise of buried treasure, our heroes battle forces of man and nature – while confronted by the lasting ravages of the immorality of the Vietnam War.

The project will mark the fourth collaboration between the streaming service and Lee, whom have both worked on the Netflix special Rodney King and the upcoming time-travelling film See You Yesterday. They’re also busy working on the second season of the comedy-drama She’s Gotta Have It which was based on Lee’s 1986 film of the same name.
