Fresh off his first Oscar nominations for "BlacKkKlansman" (director and screenplay, plus nominations for Best Picture, Best Original Score, Best Editing and a Best Supporting Actor nod for former Marine Adam Driver), Spike Lee is planning to work with Chadwick Boseman, star of Best Picture nominee "Black Panther."

"Da 5 Bloods" is the story of Vietnam veterans who return to the jungle to confront their pasts in an attempt to regain the innocence they lost in the war. Delroy Lindo ("Broken Arrow," "Malcolm X") and Jean Reno ("Ronin," "The Da Vinci Code") are set to co-star with Boseman.

You won't even have to leave the house to see it: Lee is reportedly joining the long list of filmmakers who are choosing to work with Netflix.

Production is scheduled to begin next month, but there's no word yet about a future release date.
