Spike Lee Returns with 'Chi-Raq' - Watch the Trailer

Spike Lee takes on a classic Greek play for his new film Chi-Raq, set to be released on Amazon on Dec 4th.

Based on Aristophanes’ Greek play, Lysistrata, the new film follows gang violence by a few men in a neighborhood in Chicago.

Similar to the play’s plot-line, a powerful female member of the community, Lysistrata, bands all the women together to withhold sex from their partners to put an end to the fighting and bloodshed. Predictably this leads to the inevitable decision of the men to choose weapons or their women.

The film boasts a star studded cast including Samuel L. Jackson, Nick Cannon, Angela Bassett, John Cusack, Dave Chappelle, Wesley Snipes, Jennifer Hudson, and Teyonah Parris playing Lysistrata.

This is also Amazon Studios first featured film.
