Spike Lee And Jordan Peel Working On True Life Crime Thriller 'Black Klansman'

Called Black Klansman, the movie will follow Colorado Springs detective Ron Stallworth's efforts to infiltrate and disrupt the KKK. In 1978, Stallworth joined the Klan via a newspaper classified ad and used his connections to sabotage Klan events.

"They were all assholes," Stallworth said of his time in the organization, a fact which Bleeding Cool can verify is 100% correct.

Lee and Peele's Black Klansman follows in the footsteps of a previous documentary produced by comedian Dave Chappelle about the first black KKK member, Clayton Bigsby, which aired on a special episode of Frontline in 2004. (Warning: video contains offensive language.)

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
