The people have spoken; they want a new Spike Lee joint. The Brooklyn filmmaker exceeded his $1.25 million goal on Kickstarter, which he plans to use for his next movie.

Spike started the campaign a month ago, and he’s gotten some salty looks from critics regarding the endeavor. He didn’t encounter nearly as much skepticism, however, when he was doing the same thing for his earlier movies. Spike said on his Twitter page that his newest joint is going to be a thriller. It will be his second thriller in a row; his next film, Old Boy is scheduled to hit the big screen in October.
