Spike Lee Helms “American Utopia” Stage Film

Spike Lee is set to direct a film version of the theatrical concert “David Byrne’s American Utopia” for Participant Media.

Set for release this year, the film will include a live performance from the Broadway show which opened in October last year and features Talking Heads member Byrne and a group of musicians performing numbers from his solo album and earlier works.

RadicalMedia will produce the project alongside Byrne’s Todomundo and Lee’s Forty Acres and a Mule Filmworks production companies.
