Spike Lee Is Directing a Movie-Musical About Viagra

Yes, the erectile dysfunction pill.

Spike Lee has signed on to direct a movie-musical about Viagra, the erectile dysfunction pill manufactured by Pfizer. Still untitled, the unorthodox project is based on a 2018 Esquire feature, written by David Kushner, about the origin story and development of the drug.

Helmed by Entertainment One, the movie will feature original songs by Stew Stewart and Heidi Rodewald. Lee will direct the film from a screenplay he wrote with Kwame Kwei-Armah. The director provided a statement to Variety on the project:

“First And Foremost,I Thank Ms. Jacquelyn Shelton Lee. I Thank My Late Mother For As She Would Say Taking “My Narrow,Rusty Behind” Dragging,Kickin’ And Screamin’ To The Movies When I Wuz A Nappy Headed Kid Growing Up In Da Streets Of Da People’s Republic Of Brooklyn. I Did Not Want To See Corny People Singin’ And Dancin’. I Instead Wanted To Play With My Friends On Da Block,Stoop Ball,Stick Ball,Punch Ball, Soft Ball, Basketball,2 Hand Touch, Tackle Football, Coco Leevio, Johnny On Da Pony, Hot,Peas And Butter, Crack Top,Down Da Sewer And Of Course-Booty’s Up.

Stay tuned for updates and casting information on Lee’s Viagra film. Next, we’d love to see a movie-musical about the development of the birth control pill.
