Spike Lee apparently did the right thing to finance his next movie.

The 56-year-old Crooklyn director reached his $1.25 million goal on Kickstarter to fund his next project, four days ahead of his deadline.

With $1.29 million in donations, it’s the third highest film in the crowdfunding site’s history, behind the Veronica Mars feature film and Zach Braff’s followup to Garden State.
