Tuscany Witnesses Lee’s Miracle

“Miracle at St. Anna,” Spike Lee’s next film project will start shooting this Summer in Tuscany.

Based on James McBride’s prize-winning war novel of the same name, it tells the story of three U.S. soldiers who venture between the German lines and the squadrons of predominantly black U.S. divisions in World War II in Italy in order to rescue a fourth soldier.

Veteran Italian producers Roberto Cicutto and Luigi Musini are backing the project.
