Supermodel Naomi Campbell has scored a role in Spike Lee’s WW2 drama “The Miracle at St. Anna” says Vogue.
The film deals with a regiment of black soldiers stationed in Tuscany during World War Two. Campbell has confirmed that she had meetings with and just signed a contract with Lee the other day.
Campbell says “It’s a very very small role but it involves subject matter that I’m really passionate about…it’s a subject that nobody has ever touched upon.”
She adds that “There are all the war time films of course but you never see a black soldier in any of them. I’ll do anything for Spike and I really think we should be more educated about the role of people of colour in our history.”
A late 2008 release is the earliest release it could be.
