I wonder if he'll cover Louis's entire career or focus on him and the Nazi bout. I think it'd be wiser to set up Louis his first loss to the guy and then their hsitoric rematch. Childhood to sad end shilling for Las vegas would be too obvious.

Spike Lee hasn't made a good fictional film since Malcolm X. Wht happened to him? Four Little Girls was great of course but I don't know if he has the muckraking instincts a la Michael moore for the Katrina docu. Maybe this film will wake him up.

Maybe he'll cast Paul Walker as Louis.
